STANDING BY A SERENE LAKE by Kheemchand Koli


STANDING BY A SERENE LAKE

Kheemchand Koli



Serene lake, a sanctuary in solitude! 

Your sightly scenes evoke,

Blissful memories of days long gone.

Those voices of waterbirds,

Diving into the deep waters

Still echo your immortal image.

Those herders splashing in crystal water

In hot summer noons

Unfold the gleeful rosy days.

Cattle grazing at grassy banks

Remind of an eternal affinity to you.

Flocks of goats and sheep, 

After plenteous feeding,

Wending their way to the lake

Still ring fresh in the bosom.

The frothing water born 

Out of broken waves relish the mind.

The songs of shepherds in rainy days

Still resonate in the ears.

What a bounteous body of water,

With sheltering trees and calming water

Sending serenity to so many souls.
