New Fashion

One day the buffalo began to noisily grumble
Like the horse I also need a groom.
I have given up the bovine fashion
Now I need regular grooming.
Every day as soon as it was dawn
In the cowshed it started to jump and romp.
Its master said, ‘So that is what you want.’
And he engaged for the buffalo ten men.
Hardly a couple of days had passed
When the buffalo began to cry
It is enough dear master, now I am satisfied
Please rescue me from those grooms
For they do too much grooming.
 
Translation of the poem Notun Chal from the collection Kanika by Rabindranath Tagore.
