Órchoirn Fíona na hOíche

Tá mo lámha daite le henna agam,
cathain a thiocfaidh sé?
Ar fán i gcríochaibh i gcéin
mo chroí bocht, siocfaidh sé

Cá bhfuil aoibhneas an lae uaim?
Is fada mé ag tnúth lena theacht.
Órchoirn fíona na hoíche
gan a leacht

Milis é deasghnáth an ghrá,
dá bhféadfainn é a mhaisiú, mo stór
le seoda is a chosa a ní
is gan a bheith stróicthe go deo

É a ungadh le póga cumhra
é a chlúdach le mil mo ghrá:
nuair a fhéachaim amach ar an loch
tá mo chroí ann mar loiteog faoi bhláth

Sudek looks away

Gheall sé go dtiocfadh sé ar ais amárach

Gheall sé go dtiocfadh sé ar ais amárach
agus scríobhas “Amárach”
ar fud an urláir

Ar theacht na maidine, ar siad go léir:
Abair linn, cathain a thiocfaidh “Amárach”?
Amárach, Amárach, cá bhfuil tú?
Chaoineas uisce mo chinn
ach níor tháinig Amárach ar ais.

Sé deir Vidyapati: Éist, a stór!
De d’Amárachsa deineadh inniu
le mná eile.

Vidyapati



He promised he'd return tomorrow

by Vidyapati
English version by Azfar Hussain
Original Language Maithili


He promised he'd return tomorrow.
And I wrote everywhere on my floor:
"Tomorrow."

The morning broke, when they all asked:
Now tell us, when will your "Tomorrow" come?
Tomorrow, Tomorrow, where are you?
I cried and cried, but my Tomorrow never returned!

Vidyapati says: O listen, dear!
Your Tomorrow became a today
with other women.

séipéal scriosta ...
dearmad déanta ag saighdiúir
conas paidir a rá
bombed-out church . . .
a soldier has forgotten
how to pray
église bombardée...
un soldat a oublié
comment on prie

caidreamh aon oíche ...
faic
fágtha
one-night stand . . .
nothing
remains
coup d'une nuit...
rien
ne reste
