Rajendra Nagdev Poems
The tranquility of night will melt gently, gradually birds will chirp on the branches of trees
Far above my head a twinkling entity slips from place dips, disappears

The tranquility of night
will melt gently,
gradually birds will chirp
on the branches of trees
the trees, only a few of which
are left in the city now.
In the ebony darkness of night
a dog barks furiously
a long overcoat moves in the street
with long shoes on
and a whistle blows,
the sound floats
on the air
and moves on and on and on
to the horizon
- a perfect setting to paint a picture.
I slide the curtain of my window
and peep out
it's pitch dark
the darkness can be sliced
with a knife.
A baby cries somewhere ...
