Lament of Love
Earth rises from
The fear of darkness
To a glowing dawn.
Its each dawn is a tenderly dream.
The earth’s bosom gleams
As of the mother.
That ablaze to
Satisfy the thirst
In the vein of the children,
Who fixed their root in you.
Why do you spate thy holy tears?
Why does your living soul withers?
We are brutal and rude.
Your quintessence is being
Imbibed by us.
You, the earth lament through
The notes of the lakes and rivers,
Din of the drizzle,
Bluster of waft.
Why you are not being heard?
Why you are not being understood?
Even though Mama
You are drawing
Each iota of life of yours
To enrich the honey
In the lips of your progeny.
They never knew your moan
They never see your wriggle
Their eyes never strikes
On your face,
The dark pallid clouds
That reveals your face.
Why didn’t they give you?
I wrapped you with question
But not to denature thy life.
Only since I have the pain
That your throb
Is being nagged.
