A River In My Heart - Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

I carry a river
who sings
bhatiyali songs to me.
I carry her in my heart.

She carries chip, pansi, dingi, sampan
and all other kinds of boats-
of fishermen's pride.

Also she carries chital, boyal, haair
puti, khalisa, meni, pangus and all other
tasty fishes,
fishermen's secret riches.

She carries brides shy
going first time to her new home
in a bojra or gaina with tearful eyes.

She carries besides
all those nimbus clouds of the sky
to their home to the sea nearby.

But this river I carry in my heart
also carries memory of a frightening
war trodden night.

I carry this river in my heart
singing bhatiyali songs to me
far far away who carries my mind.
