Tagore : Sailor
The boatman Manthu’s vessel is moored at the Rachiganqi Pier.
The ship was uselessly loaded with jute, and it has been a long time to park there.
As long as he is willing to lend me his boat, I will install it with a hundred paddles and raise five or six or seven sails.
I will never drive it to a stupid market.
I will sail through the seven seas and thirteen rivers in the fairy world.
But, Mom, don't hide in the corner and cry for me.
I don't want to go to the forest like Rama Gandhara 1, and I will come back after fourteen years.
I will be the prince in the story, filling my boat with what I like.
I will bring my friend Axi and I as companions. We will happily sail in the seven seas and thirteen rivers in the world of immortals.
I will sail in the early morning light.
At noon, when you are taking a shower in the pond, we will be on the land of a strange king.
We will pass the Tepuna shoal and throw the Te Panta desert behind us.
When we came back, the sky was getting dark, and I will tell you everything we have seen.
I will cross the seven seas and thirteen rivers in the fairy world.
