A Love Letter To Sonu

Oh! my cute,
No dispute,
You are number one,
Next to none.

The nights were dark,
The days were shark,
The garden lacked flowers,
No wind, no showers.

It was first of June,
I listened to a tune,
So pleasant so cute,
It was Krishna on his flute,

Radha came to me,
I was amazed to see,
Her image and her charms,
It were you into arms.

You were like your mother,
Who in fact is a mirror,
Having all of the beauty,
Of her mother so pretty,

You became a beloved,
You are still so much loved,
By me and all,
Grown up or small.

Radha gave you to me,
I thanked God to see.
And my sentiment!
I was Krishna at that moment.

(Sonu is my first grand daughter, and daughter of my lovely daughter)

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
