There is a fairy with many colours, translated by Safi Robertson

There is a fairy with many colours,
A little bit is green, a little bit is blue,
A little bit is red, and there is a little bit of yellow in her,
The rain comes and showers on her,
Her job is complete.
Soon after the rain is gone,
She comes and sees an entry to a hiding place,
Then, in a moment, she goes in to hide inside and what she does is done.
Ask her name – what is it?
The world is hers now that her work is done.

 

Original poem by Ghulam Mustafa Tabassum
