Kumaon - Poem by Udaya Pant


In the dense woods
The leaves whisper
In farm lands
Men and women sing
The songs of joy
From the icy meadows
Of the majestic Himalayas
Freezing winds come
To kiss you on face!

Beautiful people
In looks and mind
Welcome and care for you
The wildflowers invitation
Enchanting pilgrim places
The religions people
Music of devotion!

Scenic beauty of land
Water bodies and falls
Rivers in their full youth
Traditional and tribal
People and artefacts
Festivals and celebrations
Rural livelihood
Away from city civilisation
As tall as its mountains
Making moments memorable
Whenever you visit Kumaon!
