Your Laughter

March 26, 2011 Rasel Rana 0 Comments

Take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter.


Do not take away the rose,
the lance flower that you pluck,
the water that suddenly
bursts forth in joy,
the sudden wave
of silver born in you.


My struggle is harsh and I come back
with eyes tired
at times from having seen
the unchanging earth,
but when your laughter enters
it rises to the sky seeking me
and it opens for me all
the doors of life.


My love, in the darkest
hour your laughter
opens, and if suddenly
you see my blood staining
the stones of the street,
laugh, because your laughter
will be for my hands
like a fresh sword.


Next to the sea in the autumn,
your laughter must raise
its foamy cascade,
and in the spring, love,
I want your laughter like
the flower I was waiting for,
the blue flower, the rose
of my echoing country.


Laugh at the night,
at the day, at the moon,
laugh at the twisted
streets of the island,
laugh at this clumsy
boy who loves you,
but when I open
my eyes and close them,
when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air,
light, spring,
but never your laughter
for I would die.


Pablo Neruda (1904-1973 Chile)

If you are old and have the shakes

March 26, 2011 Rasel Rana 0 Comments

Roald Dahl  (1916 - 1990)


'If you are old and have the shakes,
If all your bones are full of aches,
If you can hardly walk at all,
If living drives you up the wall,
If you're a grump and full of spite,
If you're a human parasite,
THEN WHAT YOU NEED IS WONKA–VITE!
Your eyes will shine, your hair will grow,
Your face and skin will start to glow,
Your rotten teeth will all drop out
And in their place new teeth will sprout.
Those rolls of fat around your hips
Will vanish, and your wrinkled lips
Will get so soft and rosy–pink
That all the boys will smile and wink
And whisper secretly that this
Is just the girl they want to kiss!
But wait! For that is not the most
Important thing of which to boast.
Good looks you'll have, we've told you so,
But looks aren't everything, you know.
Each pill, as well, to you will give
AN EXTRA TWENTY YEARS TO LIVE!
So come, old friends, and do what's right!
Let's make your lives as bright as bright!
Let's take a dose of this delight!
This heavenly magic dynamite!
You can't go wrong, you must go right!
IT'S WILLY WONKA'S WONKA–VITE!'

I Live, I Die, I Burn, I Drown

March 26, 2011 Rasel Rana 0 Comments

Louise Labe (1524 - 1566)


I live, I die, I burn, I drown
I endure at once chill and cold
Life is at once too soft and too hard
I have sore troubles mingled with joys


Suddenly I laugh and at the same time cry
And in pleasure many a grief endure
My happiness wanes and yet it lasts unchanged
All at once I dry up and grow green


Thus I suffer love's inconstancies
And when I think the pain is most intense
Without thinking, it is gone again.


Then when I feel my joys certain
And my hour of greatest delight arrived
I find my pain beginning all over once again.

On appela le gars Albert

On appela le gars Albert
De son diminutif Bébert
Il répondit pas
Et il s'en alla
Le gars qui s'appelait Norbert.

Un jour naquit avec moustache

Un jour naquit avec moustache
Un bébé à la peau pistache
Monsieur a hurlé
Sa dame a crié
Les bouches n'aiment pas les moustaches.

Le nommé Bob n'eut pas de pot

Le nommé Bob n'eut pas de pot
Son coeur était comme un chapeau
Un beau jour de grain
Sans son galurin
Il se planta dans le repos.
