Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Shiite shiuli kena phot́e ná
Kamal kena kathá kay ná
Ná ná ná tárá kathá kay ná
Shiitete tárá kuṋkŕe geche

Ár járá áche tava bháve áche
Manete sabái tomáy jáce

Dhará áji mane majeche
Se bujhi tomáy cine niyeche

Maner kusum shatadháre phut́e
Manetei cápá paŕeche

শীতে শিউলি কেন ফোটে না
কমল কেন কথা কয় না
না না না তারা কথা কয় না
শীতেতে তারা কুঁকড়ে গেছে

আর যারা আছে তব ভাবে আছে
মনেতে সবাই তোমায় যাচে

ধরা আজি মনে মজেছে
সে বুঝি তোমায় চিনে নিয়েছে

মনের কুসুম শতধারে ফুটে
মনেতেই চাপা পড়েছে

In winter, why don't the night jasmines[nb 2] bloom?
Why don't the lilies speak?
No, no, no, they don't utter a word;
From the cold they have recoiled.

Those who remain abide in Your presence.
In earnest, they all long for You.

Today, earth's denizens feel overwhelmed.
Shivering, have they recognized You?

The mental flower has bloomed with a hundred tips.
They remain hushed inside the mind.
