The Stars were Lost

In the twilight sky
The stars were lost behind the clouds
I had said what I had to say
May be you didn’t hear
So you took your leave with such ease –
The sky was resonating
With the falling rains.
When I looked at your face
You didn’t raise your eyes
The darkness covered my pains.
Will such an evening ever return?
It seems it is forever gone.

Translation of the rainy day song – Godhulilagane meghe dhekechhilo tara – by Rabindranath Tagore. Best recording of this song is by Debabrata Biswas. The original with its swaralipi or notation may be seen at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/5233.
