Blood Ocean

The storm came—the great typhoon.
All was swept away.
At sunset, the ocean turns to blood.
Who calls for me?

Storm blew—typhoon immense.
All (emphasis) went, alas!
Stayed only blood-ocean.
Who calls me?

রক্ত সাগর

ঝড় বইল—তুফান বিশাল৷
সব-ই গেল, হায়!
রইল শুধু রক্ত সাগর৷
কে ডাকে আমায়?
