Ethereal Enchantress

This poem was first written in Assamese (Axomiya, my mother tongue) and I translated it to English today. The original poem is attached below the English version.

Ethereal Enchantress


Oh my ethereal muse,

Your shadow dances across

the mirror of my imagination.

Crossing the boundary of dreams,

On a sky beyond eternity, colored clouds

Light up by your temptuous dance motions.


From eons before time,

Even the most pious ones fell,

Seduced by the beauty of nymphs.

You my muse, the ethereal enchantress,

Strike with lightning speed

And my poems light up with life.


With utmost care I have kept

The mirror of my imagination

Without any cover,

For you to come whenever you want.

Light up my heart, my ethereal muse,

With that dance of yours.


Fleeting colorful rainbow, illusion,

How beautiful and enchanting,

Drowns me in multiple hues.

My imaginations fly and enrich my poems

with pearls from your necklace,

O’ my beautiful, ethereal enchantress.


অশৰীৰী মায়াবীনি


মোৰ কল্পনাৰ দাপোন খনত,

দেখো অশৰীৰী আজি

তোমাৰ মায়াবীনি কায়া।

সপোনৰ পৃথিৱীৰ পৰিধি আতৰি,

কোন অসীমৰ ৰঙীন ডাৱৰত

নাচে তোমাৰ মোহিনী ছায়া।


কোন ৰম্ভা মেনকাই

ক’ত ঋষি মুনিৰ

নিদ্ৰা কৰিলে হৰণ,

মায়াবীনি তুমি অশৰীৰী,

বিজুলী গতিৰে আহি,

কবিতাত মোৰ চৰোৱা ৰহণ।


কল্পনাৰ দাপোন খন

ৰাখিছোঁ যতনে মই,

নাই কোনো আৱৰণ।

যেতিয়াই মন যায়,

অশৰীৰী তুমি আহি

নাচিবা মায়াবী নাচোন।


মায়াৰ ৰামধেনু ৰঙচঙীয়া,

তাতে দেখো ক’তনা ৰহণ,

বাৰে বৰণীয়া, অতি মোহনীয়া।

কল্পনাৰ পাখি মেলি সিচি দিওঁ

কবিতাত মোৰ তোমাৰ মুকুতা মণি,

মায়াবীনি অশৰীৰী ধুনীয়া।

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.
