Farrukh Ahmad

(10 June 1918 - 19 October 1974 / Magura / Bangladesh)

I Called Her In That Name


I called her by that name which nobody uttered,
I know her that mind which nobody could know:
That mind blossomed like a flower in autumn night
And ignored the gloomy evening with dreamy fragrance.
In this life's manifold strife-torn dreary turn
Many a time I received unknowingly that mind's blissful response−
That wonder of the momentary lustre of love
Removing all the gloomy clouds from my mind.

I had no hesitation to cross many stormy lands;
That glorious moment is my dream of pristine beauty
And it left behind endless wealth in my heart−
As if the entire sky mirrored in a dew-drop;
That sky where stars twinkle, the sky with no fear of death,
The sky which is the abode of eternal love like these autumn nights.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
