Notes: This song was published on autumn, 1911.

Rabindranath was habituated to transfer the melody of a newly composed song as soon as possible. He would have preferred if someone dependable was present; if not – anybody could serve the purpose. He would try his hardest to demonstrate each line a number of times so that should his own memory fails the tune would remain preserved with someone else. Such an example is found in the chronicle ‘Gaayok Rabindranath’ written by Jibanmoy Ray, poet and a teacher of the early stages of Shantiniketan –

… Once in the Puja vacation neither Dinu-babu nor Ajit [Kumar Chakraborty] were present in the Ashram. A building had been newly constructed; its name was something like Satishkutir or Satyakutir. For an unknown reason a large table-harmonium was lying inside. Pleasant morning and no one around; I had merrily engaged myself in indulging torture on the instrument with my inept musical ability. All on a sudden poet entered the room with a small notebook in his hand. I stood back immediately while He took the chair and started playing on the harmonium. He was singing ‘Prothom phuler paabo prosadkhaani …’. He was demonstrating the song over and over so that I could pick it correctly. I was still not spared after it had been finished. He started another one ‘Ogo shephaliboner moner kaamona …’. Both the songs have been only recent compositions. He continued to sing himself for not less than nine to ten times and directed me to do so numerous times before I was releaved. …

Transliteration in English

Ogo   shephaliboner moner kaamona,
Keno   sudur gagone gagone
Aachho   milaaye pabone pabone.
Keno   kirane kirane jholiya
Jaao   shishire shishire goliya.
Keno   chapolo aalote chhaayate
Aachho   lukaye aapono maayate.
Tumi   muroti dhoriya chokite naamo-na,
Ogo   shephaliboner moner kaamona.
Aaji   maathe maathe chalo bihori,
Trino   utthuk shihori shihori.
Naamo   taalopallabobijane,
Naamo   jale chhaayachobisrijane.
Eso   sourabho bhori aanchole,
Aankhi   aankiya sunilo kaajole.
Mamo   chokher samukhe khanek thaamo-na,
Ogo   shephaliboner moner kaamona.
Ogo   sonar swapono, swadher saadhona,
Kato   aakul haasi o rodane,
Raate   dibase swapone bodhane,
Jwaali   jonaki prodipomaalika,
Bhori   nisithotimirothaalika,
Praate   kusumer saaji saajaye,
Saaje   jhilli-jhnaajhor baajaye,
Kato   korechhe tomar stuti aaradhona,
Ogo   sonar swapon, saadher saadhona.
Oi   bosechhe subhro aasone
Aaji    nikhiler samobhasone.
Aaha   swetochandanotilake
Aaji   tomare saajaye dilo ke.
Aaha   borilo tomare ke aaji
Taar   dukkhoshayono teyaji -
Tumi   ghuchale kaahar birahoknaadona,
Ogo   sonaro swapano,  saadhero saadhona.
