Saya U Ba Kyi

In lighter vein : Hna yauk hte nay gin de”

Translation by the late Sayagyi U Ba Kyi [Institute of Education]:

Darling
Only two we will live dear
On the high crest
Of the Mount Everest
And the Sahara Desert
Driest without water
To the North Pole
May be freezing cold
Where the sun will never never grow
With all my heart and soul
Only two darling We will go

Editor’s Note:

Saya translated the verse while invigilating.
Saya Dr. Maung Maung Kha used to accompany Saya U Ba Kyi’s vocals with his violin at the functions (mostly at Rangoon University Ah Nu Pyinnya Ah Thin”.
Saya is an internationally renowned artist.
Grapevine says that Saya took sabbath before drawing paintings for “Illustrated History of Buddhism” written by Mahagandayone Sayadaw.
