Chandalika


Chandalika, Chandalika,
Who calls you a girl
Untouchable,
Untouchable and defiled,
You give,
Give me the water to drink,
I want to drink from your hands.

Chandalika, Chandalika,
You are not fallen and degraded,
Maybe it that something of yours
Does not suit me,
But you are not, not Ashprishya, Untouchable,
But touchable, touchable,
O my love!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
