Poem celebrating the Convocation held on Gyogone Campus [reviving the tradition that began five decades ago]

“ပညာ႐ွိတို႔ေလွ်ာက္လွမ္းရာ – ၾသဘာလမ္း”

Path tread by the wise : Awbar Lann

ၾသဘာလမ္း….
ၾကမ္းတမ္းဖုထစ္၊ ႏြမ္းညစ္ခဲ့သည္
ၾကာျမင့္ျပီေလ။

Awbar Lann …
Rough and ragged
Worn out and faded
For ages [seem like eternity]

ၾသဘာလမ္း…
ဆူးျပြမ္းဖုန္ထူ၊ လူသူကင္းမဲ့
ဖဲ့ေျခြခံရ၊ ပိတ္ဆို႔ၾကလည္း
႐ုန္းၾကြျပင္းထန္၊ တစ္ဖန္ အလွည့္ေျပာင္း
ငါတို႔ေက်ာင္း…
ခေရာင္းေတာမမည္၊ ရင္ခ်ီ ရင္ေကာ့
ေမာ့ေမာ့ေပ်ာ္မဆံုး၊ စည္းလံုးျခင္းအားျဖင့္။

Awbar Lann …
Thorns, weeds, dust
Void of people [walkers]
Stripped, torn down
Blocked
With violent struggle and resistance
The tables were turned [in the Pwint Linn Era]
Our beloved alma mater …
No longer a jungle
Mightily displaying valor, strength and structure
Unbounded happiness, uplifting pride
Unity and unparalleled Camaraderie

ၾသဘာလမ္းမွာ
ပညာမဲ့မွန္သမွ် ၊ ေျခမခ်ရ။
ၾသဘာလမ္းမွာ
ပညာမဲ့တို႔ မေလွ်ာက္ရ။
ၾသဘာလမ္းတြင္၊ ႐ႊင္ၾကည္ႏွလံုး
အျပံဳ း ကိုယ္စီ၊ ထီမထင္သည့္
အားျပည့္ ၾကံ႕ခိုင္
သံျပိဳ င္သီခ်င္း ဟစ္ေၾကြးစို႔။ ။

Awbar Lann
Bars the unwise [and uneducated] not to step on
Awbar Lann
Forbids the unwise [and uneducated] to walk
On Awbar Lann
Warm, kind and wise [sayas and students]
With bubbling smiles [and high spirits]
Undeterred [of Adhamma Oppressors]
Healthy, robust and energetic
Sing loud and clear [way up to the skies]
Chorus and refrain [of the Victory Song]
