“এই খেদ মোর মনে
ভালবেসে মিটল না আশ- কুলাল না এ জীবনে।
হায়, জীবন এত ছোট কেনে?
এ ভুবনে?”

“কালো যদি মন্দ তবে কেশ পাকিলে কাঁদ কেনে?
কালো কেশে রাঙা কুসুম হেরেছ কি নয়নে?”
Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay, কবি

“এ ভুবনে ডুবল যে চাঁদ সে ভুবনে উঠল কি তা?
হেথায় সাঁঝে ঝরল যে ফুল হোথায় প্রাতে ফুটল কি তা?
এ জীবনের কান্না যত― হয় কি হাসি সে ভুবনে?
হায়! জীবন এত ছোট কেনে?
এ ভুবনে?”
Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay, কবি
