Nayane varaśá elo
Kena mrganayanii
Phul tulecho sur sedhecho
Se ki tabe áse ni

Támbuleri ráge rauṋin
Ośt́ádharer bháśá je kśiiń
Kon hatásháy sandhyábeláy
Sáṋjher sáje sájo ni

Ákásh páne ceye ácho
Kabariir veńii khulecho
Mandákrántá tále tále
Shikhiire nácáo ni
Tumi sáṋjher shaṋkha bájáo ni

নয়নে বরষা এলো
কেন মৃগনয়নী
ফুল তুলেছ সুর সেধেছ
সে কি তবে আসে নি

তাম্বুলেরই রাগে রঙিন
ওষ্ঠাধরের ভাষা যে ক্ষীণ
কোন্‌ হতাশায় সন্ধ্যাবেলায়
সাঁঝের সাজে সাজ নি

আকাশ পানে চেয়ে আছ
কবরীর বেণী খুলেছ
মন্দাক্রান্তা তালে তালে
শিখীরে নাচাও নি
তুমি সাঁঝের শাঁখ বাজাও নি

In your eyes the rains, they came;
Why so, my doe-eyed maiden?
You've plucked flowers, rehearsed strains;
But still He did not come!

Stained red from the betel leaf,
Your lips, their speech, it is weak.
With what despair at twilight,
You did not don your evening attire?

You are gazing toward the sky;
Braided tresses, You've untied.
With meters Mandákrántá,[nb 2]
You did not make the peacock dance;
You did not sound the conch of dusk.

  2. ^ Mandákrántá is a metric style employed in classic Samskrta verse. It is often used for expressing mystic love. In mandákrántá, the number of syllables and the pattern of heavy and light syllables is maintained strictly throughout each verse. Rhyming may or may not be there. Literally, the word, mandákrántá, means "lady slowly approaching" or "slow stepper".
