    -Sajjad Arefin
(Translated by Ahmed Tahsin Shams)
one bird
don't know the name
coloured gray
a tall tail
leaps to and fro
sings and swings
woods after woods
leaves after leaves

a long-born desire
to make a cage out of pure gold
and ask the bird
if it wishes to dwell over there or not.

Sajjad Arefin, also known as Mobarak Hossain, is Director at Bangla Academy. Ahmed Tahsin Shams is Lecturer, Department of English, Notre Dame University Bangladesh, and Editorial Assistant, The Daily Observer.
