NN23. GONE TO HER BIRTH HOUSE

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

KING NALAN

Sea of love

Some cried, some fell down,
Some said, “it is miracle one,
That back here she came,”
She was surrounded by them.

Out of love for Dhamayanthi,
There was jubilation in the city,
They all welcomed her,
And tried to cheer her.

Saw her father

On seeing her father,
She cried, “Oh father,
How can I tell you now,
All the time, I suffered how.”

O’er him, her tears fell.
On his feet, she fell.
She cried and cried,
Non-stop, she cried.

Floated on tears

Parents couldn’t bear this.
They also floated on tears.
Their tongue dried up.
Perplexed, they stood up.

Mother cried

“In that dilapidated hall,
In the darkness like devil,
How Nalan left you there?
Alone how did you stay there?”

“What did you think there?
What did you do there?”
Like this, her mother
Cried for her daughter.
