''The River" - A poem by Assamese poet Hiren Bhattacharya


                                           That River

Origin : Hiren Bhattacharya

Translated by Rashmi Rekha Bora Hazarika

 

The river Subansiri


That river of my village flows

Like the humming of bees

Whose sweet streams

Captivates my vagabond soul.

 

Sometimes

Amidst the pettiness of day-to-day life

I feel: the dreamlike vastness

Of that thin river

Memory streaks flood

The blind sky.

 

That beautiful river

Of my village

Still flows

Far far away.

A portrait of Hiren Bhattacharya
