O Sailor A Hindi Poem in English

Sailor - A Hindi Poem in English

I am giving below a Hindi Poem of a great Indian Hindi writer Jai Shankar Prasad (30 January 1890 – 15 November 1937). I have translated this short Poem in English and I am placing it here on PS in both English and Hindi to bring both Hindi and English Poets a little more closely in understanding each other. This Poem is a token of my efforts to high light some beautiful works of Hindi in English and likewise some wonderful poetry of English in Hindi. Jai Shankar Prasad is considered to be one of the most famous figures in modern Hindi literature. Hope to have your attention on this new venture.

Sailor - A Hindi Poem in English

Translated stanza in English

O Sailor!  You have brought me
On this deserted beach
While sailing  on rugged waves 
Has anyone ever come to this arduous place? 01

Hindi stanza lines in English

Naavik is soone tat par
kin lahron me khe laaya 
Is biihad belaa me kyaa
Ab taq thaa koi aaya. 01

Translated stanza in English
To which shore I go back again
In the shabby lap of darkness
Without any temptation for life
In its painful deceits full of bluff. 02

Hindi stanza lines in English

Us paar kahaan fir jaaoon 
Tm ke malin anchal me
Jivan kaa lobh nahin
Wah vednaa chadmamaya chal me.02

Translated stanza in English

On the path of reversal 
Footprints can't be found
The deserted heart has shrouded 
In the stream of overflowing tears. 03

Hindi stanza lines in English

Pratyaavartan ke path me 
Pad chinh na shesh rahaa hai
Dooba hai hradaya marusthal
Aansoon nad umad rahaa hai.
