A Solitary Composition
(14th January 1962 / Balarampur Village in the District of Purulia in West Bengal.)

A Solitary Composition

Amidst the desolate ocean inhabited an afflicted oyster
I have retrieved it from an abandoned sandhill
It had adhered so long in aslumbering zone, alone, a Gem

What have I to give? A tremulous soul, salty sweat
Heart's metallic compassion. Perpetual restlessness beauteous lustre

Will I fasten it at the juncture of ne klace, in union
Will it recede lonesome grief, conkered
