The Poem of the Month (November, 2009): THE POPE IN DHAKA


A copy of my poem written in Bengali on the visit of Pope John Paul II to Bangladesh on November 19, 1986. It was published in Doel, a collection of mini-poems, edited by Aldrick Biswas and published on December 25, 1986 from Dhaka.

I present below the English rendition of this poem.

The Pope in Dhaka

You had come

You returned home,
But you left behind
A bundle of love.
