Poem by Rajashree Mohapatra
A FAREWELL INTO A NIGHT
Under vast concave sapphire,
A shower of sweet nectar.
Over liquid emerald,
We wandered hand in hand.
Through meadows …
Our early love was in a glittering sphere ,
Like dew at dawn , glided joyously without fear.
Our world was in a grain of sand,
A heaven in the palm of your hand.
Oh my love !
Still your voice is so clear,
Of old fields of childish pleasure.
Often I sing those wild songs,
Songs of ecstasy, you love to hear .
Time has passed away in colder light.
Lost are the days of golden bright.
I still think of you and shall do so …
Till our last farewell into night.
