  • From Why do you whisper : Rabindranath Tagore
    translated from Bengali to English by Prasenjit Gupta

    Why do you whisper, dear Death, my Death? Why do you come so softly close and stare: what kind of love is this? When evening flowers droop on their tiring stems When the cows return to their sheds after walking the field dawn to dusk You come on those so-gentle feet and sit demurely at my side. I don’t understand the things you say dear Death, my Death.

    From Utshorgo, No. 45. First published BE 1309.
    Published in Parabaas August, 2010 (22-she Sraban, 1417)
