Hey! Do you listen to the silent thudsof the footsteps, wandering in search of that lost peace that once danced?
The fairy of rainbow-tinted blossomsThe agile spark of the glow-worm The melody of the bodacious nature’s call
Hey! Do you listen to their elegy??
The truculent rumpus of start and stopThe vain scrimmage of do or die Have made me a live corpse..
The blossom of my life, etiolatinggradually to dwindle and decay. What way lies ahead???
Hey! Do you listen to the shriveled cries?
The silent tempest within mehas cunningly clasped me. My breath is too late to arrive.
Will my wait be over nowfor the peace too seems busy too far My steps too seem to be dying out.
Hey! Do you listen to the final vows I take?
