Leaders of the seven leading countries,
You are endowed with lively sensibility.
Men of most wonderful
comprehensive nature,
Serene and stately you are
Pity’s bright beam
Shines in your eyes.

I am begging the winds
To carry the sad moans
Of helpless women to your ears.
They are imploring you
To bring back their husbands
And their beloved sons,
Lost in the maze of war.
Alleviate their torments,
Their heavy trailing melancholy.
Their eyes are fathomless,
wondering,bleak and bare.
Lost in misery’s darkest caverns,
frail of heart,their lamentations resembles
Mary’s lamentation for Christ.

Give new leases to their new lives.
Remove the brutal blast of winter,
Give them the innocent vision
Of an ordered and unified world. [avatar user=”Pramila” size=”100″ align=”right” link=”/author/pramila”]
I make this earnest appeal
To your kind hearts
For of all hearts,yours are the softest.

Sometimes when a dark cloud settles on me
And the hope of a brighter tomorrow
Is suppressed in my charcoaled soul,
I look at the rabbits hopping around
and the hedgehogs moving about
After a winter of dormancy.

I listen to the flap of of the bats’
Low flight beneath the star-spangled sky.
I look for a sympathetic ear,
A voice as soft as honeydew,
I look at Picasso’s cubist painting
With eyes half-languishing
Half-drown in tears.
then I feel like a meek coward
Travelling among villages incognito.

The serenely still night
Brings to my mind
The wisdom of ancient men and women
Who were perfectly free from
The least touch of sickly melancholy.

I think of the naked and native
Dignity of mankind
In all its majesty and its might.
Then,I choose not to be the nightingale sitting in darkness
Cheering its own solitude [avatar user=”Pramila” size=”100″ align=”right” link=”/author/pramila”] With sounds sweet.
I choose to be the ‘Paille-en-queue’
Flying over the pines
In all its moods and guises.

Eyes drunk with love,
Innocent-looking as strawberries,
She heaved sad sighs
While floods of silent tears
Flowed down her cheeks
In sweet melancholy and sweeter drooping.

She felt like a pine in solitude
Wrapped in an atmosphere
Of exclusive respectability.
Breathless though she was,
She could neither reveal nor conceal
The sweet longing of her trembling heart.

A golden light had flashed on her heart
Leaving rays as sweet
As the fire made of firewood.
Though never told,her feelings
Were understood by somebody,her man,
Who read the lucidity in her soul.

He was full of the splendor of summer
With no tinge of winter’s horror.
While his broad strong lips moved
Soothing words sprung out of his mouth.

That same evening
They would be meeting
In a remote corner. [avatar user=”Pramila” size=”100″ align=”right” link=”/author/pramila”] And she cried the whole morning.
Never had she realised
That love could be so painful
Until she fell in love.
