*The Moonlight Seek*

The moonlight-
What does it seek ?
The autumn breeze-
What does it sing ?
You..
You..
Yes you..
Just you..
You..
You..
Oh you..
Just you..
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?

Early morning,
As the cuckoo cries…
A pang comes by,
And wets my eyes…
A pang comes by,
And wets my eyes…
The clouds swallow,
My dreams today,
The wind robbed me
And flew them away.
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?

In a moonlit night,
The twinkling stars…
Unleash a new magic,
Into my eyes…
Unleash a new magic,
Into my eyes…
My heart,
Flies by,
To a far away land…
To reach my village,
My village courtyard…
The autumn breeze-
What does it sing …?
You…
You…
Yes you…
Just you…
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?
The moonlight-
What does it seek …?

PS: It is my attempt to translate the song ‘Junake Bisaare ki’. I tried my best. Forgive me if I could not do justice to the song _/\_ .

      2. Thanks a lot for the translation of Mon Mur. What a song by Papon !! Once again beautifully translated. The depth of emotion in the unique voice of Papon can now be enjoyed even more.

        Only Eibili Muk remains now.
