  • A Stanza of Sunlight

    On the bald head of the dusty earth,
    Ashwaklanta* bestowed a stanza of sunlight.

    The moonlight uncovered her veiled white face,
    Before the darkness had conferred invite.

    Below wafted the perennial beats
    of Sharangak* and Shrabana*,
    Lovers together in dark contrite.

    The sky embraced the cold ice sea
    A perfect mirror, a moving epitome,
    That eve it flew beyond the sun
    To complete the quatrain time once begun.
