Meager Are My Possessions
by Kumud Biswas
Bookmark and Share
  Meager are my possessions
And I feel very miserable
When I lose even its smallest part.

Without any reason
Like the banks of a river
I want to hold on to the flowing water
In wave after wave
Before it passes
It wounds my heart.
My possessions are meager
Whatever I lose
I lose it forever.

Whatever goes and whatever remains
If I offer you all
Then none is lost
They live in your glory.

In you abide so many suns
In you abide so many moons
Not even an atom is lost -
When I lose my treasure
Won't they remain at your feet?
My possessions are meager
Whatever I lose
I lose it forever.

Transcreation of poem 17 from the collection Naivedya by Rabindranath Tagore. Like many poems of this collection it is actually a song. Its best recordings are by Santosh Sengupta and Dwijen Mukherji. The original may be seen at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/12749. Its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/4744.
