A Minor Bird;

by- Robert Frost

I have wished a bird would fly away,And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In want to silence any song.


ছোট্ট একটা পাখি

-রবাট ফ্রস্ট

আমার ইচ্ছা ছিল পাখিটি এখান থেকে উড়ে যাক,

আর সারাদিন আমার আশেপাশে এসে না গান গাক;

দরজা থেকে হাততালি দিযে ওকে আমি উড়াতে চাইতাম

অসহ্য হয়ে উঠেছে হঠাৎ যা আগে ছিল অন্যরকম;

কোনো কোনো বিষয়ে আমারও দোষ থাকবে

ভাগ্যক্রমে পাাখিটির শুধু এর মাঝে কোনো হাত না থাকবে।

আমি ভাবছি এই বিষয়ে কোথাও তো ত্রুটি হয়ে থাকবে

ঐ পাখির সুর মেশানো গান অকারণেই থামতে চাইতাম।
