Basana hase basana kande Basana base bhalo Usha debir mridu hasi Gahan timir kalo Akuti uthe akash pane Basana prane hani Basana moha ek nimeshe Churna habe jani
My desire smiles and my desire cries. My desire loves the sweet smile Of the goddess dawn And the darkness Of dark night. I know not how and why My aspiration-flame is climbing up To reach the skies. I know in a twinkling My desire-world Will come to its final end.
