When the warriors came out first from...

Language: English after the Bangla (Bengali)

When the warriors came out first from their master's hall, 
where had they hid their power? 
Where were their armour and their arms?

They looked poor and helpless, 
and the arrows were showered upon them 
on the day they came out from their master's hall.

When the warriors marched back again to their master's hall 
where did they hide their power?

They had dropped the sword 
and dropped the bow and the arrow; 
peace was on their foreheads, 
and they had left the fruits of their life behind them 
on the day they marched back again to their master's hall.
