Coaly Eyes



The term 'coaly eyes' is a widely used in description of deep dark eyes amongst Bengali poets. This poem is a tribute to Nazrul Islam, famous Bengali Poet, who begins one of his poems/songs with the same opening line, hence under quotation.

'So much tears in those coaly eyes'

that bleed with every blink

so blink away those coaly eyes

and let your sorrow sink

let it be lost amongst the thoughts that fly away every day

now raise your coaly eyes 

High up to the skies

look down at the ground

Look around you and you will find 

a pair of eyes that are waiting to be seen

So give in to the sight

that will kindle those coaly eyes that love to blink
