হাড়গিলে–লিমেরিক

হাড়গিলে

***

সুখে করে সংসার হাড়গিলে
উচ্চ বৃক্ষ চুড়ে দোঁহে মিলে।
ডিম পাড়ে কোথা তারা?
ভেবে আমি দিশাহারা
থেকে থেকে চমকায় মম পিলে।

***
Inspired by Ogden Nash —

The ostrich roams the great Sahara
Its mouth is wide and its legs narra.
It has such long and lofty legs,
I am glad it sits to lay its eggs.

    This is one of my favourite translations you did. Thanks for posting reminding me again of Nash, the magician of words.
