Bhitar Bahir Dibash Rati (1)

Bhitar bahir dibas rati
Chhilam dushtu shishu
Tabu ami tomar kole
Chhilam tomar Jishu


Day and night
My infant inner life and my infant outer life
Became my two perfect mischief-prank-victims.
Yet, I know not how I was found
In your Elysian affection-flooded lap,
Like Jesus of his Mother Mary.
