Summer Friends Class 8 Bengali Meaning


Let’s Read:

The Swallow is a summer bird; 

সোয়ালো হল গ্রীষ্মের পাখি;

He in our chimneys, when the weather 

সে থাকে আমাদের চিমনিতে যখন আবহওয়া

Is fine and warm, may then be heard 

ভালো ও উষ্ম, তার পর শোনা যেতে পারে

Chirping his notes for weeks together. 

তাঁর কিচিরমিচির সুরে গান একসাথে কয়েক সপ্তাহ ধরে

Come there but one cold wintry day, 

কিন্তু যদি একটা শীতের দিন আসে

Away will fly our guest the Swallow: 

আমাদের অতিথি সোয়ালো উড়ে যাবে দুরে:

And much like him we find the way 

তার মত আমরা রাস্তা দেখি

Which many a gay young friend will follow.

যেটা আমাদের অনেক সুখের বন্ধু অনুসরণ করে।

In dreary days of snow and frost 

বরফ ও তুষারের একঘেয়ে দিনে

Closer to Man will cling the Sparrow: 

চড়াই মানুষের কাছাকাছি থাকে:

Old friends, although in life we’re crost, 

পুরনো বন্ধুদের যদিও জীবনে আমরা অতিক্রম করে যাই

Their hearts to us will never narrow.

আমাদের প্রতি তাদের হৃদয় কখনও সংকীর্ণ হবে না।

Give me the bird-give me the friend 

আমাকে সেই পাখি দাও সেই বন্ধু দাও

sing in frost-will love in sorrow, 

যে তুষারে গাইবে – দুঃখ ভালবাসবে

Whate’er mischance to-day may send, 

যদি কোনো দুর্ভাগ্য হটাত পাঠায়

Will greet me with his sight to-morrow.

আমাকে শুভেচ্ছা জানাবে আগামীকালের পটভূমিতে।
