Rabindra-Sangeet (Tagore Song): Jhora Pata Go (Fallen Leaves)

Composed: 20th Falgun, 1337 (4th March, 1931)

Category: Prokriti (Nature)

 

Bengali Lyrics:

 

ঝরা পাতা গো, আমি তোমারি দলে।

     অনেক হাসি অনেক অশ্রুজলে

ফাগুন দিল বিদায়মন্ত্র    আমার হিয়াতলে॥

     ঝরা পাতা গো, বসন্তী রঙ দিয়ে

     শেষের বেশে সেজেছ তুমি কি এ।

     খেলিলে হোলি ধূলায় ঘাসে ঘাসে

          বসন্তের এই চরম ইতিহাসে।

তোমারি মতো আমারো উত্তরী

     আগুন-রঙে দিয়ো রঙিন করি–

          অস্তরবি লাগাক পরশমণি

              প্রাণের মম শেষের সম্বলে॥

 

The Song in English Scripts:

 

Jhora pata go, ami tomari doley.

Onek hashi onek osrujoley

Fagun dilo bidayemontro   amar hiyatoley.

Jhora pata go,      bosonti rong diye

shesher beshe shejachho tumi kiye.

kheliley holi dhulaye ghashe ghashe

boshonter ei chorom itihashe.

tomaro moto amaro uttori

agun rong e diyo ronging kori–

ostorobi lagak poroshmoni

praner momo shesher shomboley.

 

The Song in English Translation:

 

Fallen leaves, I’m one of you, dear.

With much laughter and many a tear

Spring chanted the farewell song into my core.

You are donned       in Spring glow,

In auburn attire     kept for the last day;

amidst dust and grass a riot of color was your play,

              in Spring’s finale.

Like yours, dye my apparel

          in flaming red and gold—

             let sundown’s divine tinge

touch the last remnants of my soul.
