Feel the difference!

Translation:

You praise (your beloved’s) beautiful tresses, I speak about the untidy hair (of the poor);

You listen to the (the sweet) songs of Cuckoo, I hear many children moaning because of hunger!

I believe, like Keats, that Poetry cannot be translated; if translated, it loses its essential beauty. So, in order to understand, and enjoy, poetry, we must learn that language.
