Shepherd's Flute

In the Green pastures that run
Over mountain tops
Along valleys and plains
Adorning the earth
In an uncontrollable fashion
Herds of animals
Graze lazily in the
Abundant lush greenery
But only where the
Shepherd would
Want them to feed on.
There is no reason to hurry
Sustenance spreads from
Horizon to horizon.
While filling my pot
With sweet mountain water
From the singing brook
Your presence reeked into
My very being
You should have
Controlled the heartwarming
Music of your bamboo flute
Like you have restricted
Your heard of animals.
My heart cries to see the
Author of that
Invitingly melodious
Music of the
Unknown shepherd
My heart aches for you
Why didn’t you restrain your music
Your invitation then
I shouldn't have been
Tempted like this
To see a stranger,
Owner of a melody.
