My Kid's Kingdom
by Kumud Biswas

Secretly alone
If I could find a place
In the very heart of my child's mind
I would then take a look at his kingdom.
I have no notion
How are his sun, his moon and his stars
How do they get together in the sky
I have heard him talking with them
All the time.
I have also heard
All of them get down in the horizon
And beckon my child
With a rainbow in their hand.
The clouds gather above the trees
And plan to play with my child
Those who are very serious and somber
And whom we cannot expect to reach
With all their colors and songs
All of them come to my child
To be his friends.

The way that runs touching his mind
Right up to the end of this world
The land where it goes
Is very strange indeed
Not to be found in any book of geography
It is a land of wonder
A land of impossible things
Day and night
It is visited by a wind
That blows from the land of a king
Whose name is not found in any book of history
If I could go and stay there for a while
I would then see
The folks who people this land
They must be very strange indeed
For they are never sad or sorry
Nor they have to do any work
They have no worries or anxieties
Nor they ever die
They live on forever
In the land of the stories of my child
There the trees and flowers
The snake-maid and the princess
And all the birds and beasts
Men and demons
Do as they like
They never bother what is true or false
And no doubt ever troubles their mind.

Transcreation of the poem 'Khokar Rajya' from the collection Shishu by Rabindranath Tagore.
