Hausufâ (Flower), Nâko/By: Rabindranath Tagore

Nâko: Rabindranath Tagore

Mheut man hausufâ an’anâ i ma meiki, kaisâ a-mpao! Au umtau kaiskaisâ in
a-nmakânenê ma nmouf neu afuskukû.

Au masit ka upein fa bale nbi ho iunhausufâ, me mumasab ma msaije meik
ho ‘nimam in menan ma mhetu. Au umtau kaiskaisâ pahe nïsbai oras
au nekak fêka naskék, ma tabu he uteab au ‘tulû a-nfin kun.

Masi in warna ka nmafau fa ma in fone namneuk, mpaek hausufâ i
nbi ho mepu ma mhetu tomas neno fê ‘teme.

Flower

Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not! I fear lest it
droop and drop into the dust.

I may not find a place in thy garland, but honour it with a touch of
pain from thy hand and pluck it. I fear lest the day end before I am
aware, and the time of offering go by.

Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower
in thy service and pluck it while there is time.
