1.
She hears the voice
of unrealised bliss in
the coos of koel
at the window sill this evening
rains love and delight

2.
His message to meet
at moonrise among the flowers
sparkles a secret
on her smiling face ;passion
glows with charming fervour


3.
She is no moon yet
she drifts like the moon , takes care
of him from the sky--
meets him for a short, waxing
leaves him for a long, waning


4.
Before going to bed
she looks too sad to have
any sweet dream:
the lonely lamp glints no love
and no star peeks through the curtains


5.
Yearning to meet him
she turns a silk-worm spinning
love-silk in cold night--
stands in a shade melting tears
like a candle, drop by drop


--R.K.Singh
