The Sweet Songs Of Love: 2-The Lily - Poem by Biswa Ranjan Nayak

The Owl kids hoot

In merriment high,

As if, they had been

Waiting, for ages, over-


For this moment

Like the skylarks

On the banks of river.


The rising moon

Ascends high-

In the eastern sky

crazy for his love,

the queen

Of the evening,

Lily's love.



His touch of

Deep passion, moonshine

Wets the petals

An invitation, sacred-

Full of thirst for her.


The lily greets

Her lover moon

With her smiling petal lips.

    Beauty of tenderness is there in Lily's love. Nature is graceful to her. This flower greets lover moon beautifully. The rising moon ascends high and this is reflected in river. Moonshine touches the petals gently. Very nice and brilliant natural imagery is drawn in this interesting poem. Nature's love is originated from God's love. We see Lily's face reflects love for God and petals sing for God adoring beauty of his wonderful creation....10 (Report) Reply
