Dear Chris,

The 6th poem of Stray Birds has this aphorism:

IF you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars. (6)

The bengali original (beoẏāriśa pākhirā) of the above aphorism is as

দিনান্তে সূর্যাস্ত দেখে, যদি তুমি অশ্রুসিক্ত হও;
রাতের আকাশ ভালে তারাদের বন্ধু তুমি নও। (‘বেওয়ারিশ পাখিরা’: 6)


dinānte sūryāsta dekhe, yadi tumi aśrusikta hao;
rātera ākāśa bhāle tārādera bandhu tumi nao । (beoẏāriśa pākhirā: 6)
