Ravi Kopra


A Laborer, A Hindi Poem By Raj Swami In English Translation - Poem by Ravi Kopra

A laborer works
Hard for a loaf of bread
He is sad.
He sheds tears of poverty
In his loneliness
He puts his children to bed early
And tells them -
In their dreams they will see
Jesus with armfuls of buttered bread.
