  • Tagore song, "A while has passed" : Rabindranath Tagore
    translated from Bengali to English by Anandamayee Majumdar

    A while has passed since you called my name
    But no one heard you
    And now I can not withhold the unseen tears
    But no one listens

    I wander with a musing heart
    And gaze at the faces I find
    No one evokes such tears
    As you do

    The strains of music sharply rise
    And this enclosed world
    Trembles in agony, in ecstasy
    Yet no one knocks at the door

    The sky reverberates with the pain of the unknown
    The air bears the flight
    Of a nameless message
    Yet here, the pathways
    Do not speak of the untold secret.

    Puja, No. 161.

    Translated by Anandamayee Majumdar.
