Bakul tarur chaye is the 1594th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Bakul tarur cháye
Ke go ele
Phul bicháye

Kao ni kathá káro sane
Chile sońár siḿhásane
Vasanteri rauṋer gáne
Man bhariye

Emant́i ár pávo kotháy
Báhir bhitar ráuṋiye dey
Maner końe tulir t́áne
Madhu mákhiye

বকুল তরুর ছায়ে
কে গো এলে
ফুল বিছায়ে

কও নি কথা কারো সনে
ছিলে সোণার সিংহাসনে
বসন্তেরই রঙের গানে
মন ভরিয়ে

এমনটি আর পাব কোথায়
বাহির-ভিতার রাঙিয়ে দেয়
মনের কোণে তুলির টানে
মধু মাখিয়ে

Neath the shade of bakul tree,[nb 2]
Oh Who art Thou that appeared,
Flowers scattering?

Not a word You spoke with anybody;
On a golden throne You had been,
With sweet notes in hues of spring,
Suffusing psyche.

Is there anywhere that I will find a peer,
Who makes colored both the sides, out and in,
With brush-stroke on mental cranny,
The spring having smeared?
