I have never seen such sailing
Your sail white and clean
A sweet breeze stretches out full
And your boat goes in a slow rhythm
I am anxious to know
From what alien shore
It carries what treasure
My mind wants to drift along
It wants to leave behind
Here all it has stored
A light rain falls behind your boat
The clouds rumble
And sunshine falls on your face
Through the broken clouds.
You master of the boat, I wonder,
You are whose beloved one
In what sweet tune what sweet song you will sing.
Transcreation of the song – Amal dhabal pale legechhe manda madhur haoa – by Rabindranath Tagore. Its best live-recording is by Debabrata Biswas.
