The Rainbow Bengali Meaning | Lesson 3 | Class 6

Boats sail on the rivers,

নদী উপর দিয়ে নৌকা ভেসে যায়,

And ships sail on the seas;

এবং সমুদ্রের উপর ভেসে যায় জাহাজ;

But clouds that sail across the sky

কিন্তু আকাশ জুড়ে যে মেঘ ভাসে

Are prettier than these.

তা এগুলির চেয়ে আরও সুন্দর।

There are bridges on the rivers,

নদীর উপর সেতু আছে,

As pretty as you please;

তুমি যেমন চাও সেরকমই সুন্দর;

But the bow that bridges heaven,

কিন্তু যে ধনুক (রামধনু) স্বর্গকে (আকাশকে) যুক্ত করে,

And overtops the trees,

এবং গাছকে ছাড়িয়ে যায়,

And builds a road from earth to sky,

এবং পৃথিবী থেকে আকাশ পর্যন্ত একটি রাস্তা তৈরি করে,

Is prettier far than these.

তা এগুলির থেকে অনেক বেশি সুন্দর।
