    Poem 15 from Chhinno-bichchhinno
    (কবিতা ১৫, 'ছিন্ন-বিচ্ছিন্ন')

    But it must have rained.
    Many saw her wane in the harsh sun
                      Escape across the fields
                              Beyond humans, to rocks and moss, trees
                              Beyond gales, to a breeze, calm
    But it must have rained.

    The original poem 'Kabita 15' (কবিতা ১৫) was first collected in the book 'Chhinno-bichchhinno' ('Torn Pages') published by Ananda Publishers, Kolkata, in 1975. In 64 pages, this book contained 112 poems, including many very short poems and also segments of some incomplete poems of this famously bohemian poet.
