238. FRIENDSHIP


Hail the friends of kohima land
Hail the lights of Mangalore,
Twinkling ‘neath tall, green palms,
Swept by rains and ocean breezes;
As the bower of bosoms sound
In happy chorus,
‘Come, welcome to
Our revered friends;
The mutual slogan
Warmingly ascends.

The warm friendship expanded,
The scent of musk spread afar;
Undreamed dreamt and
Unthought thought,
Unhappened happened and
Undiscovered found;
Is this not the real creation?
Is this not the new invention?
Eureka, Aloysians exclaimed
With Kohima friendship in their hearts
As unity in diversity
Surfaces in sons of the land.

A bridge is built
In human kind,
A ship is built
To Nagaland: Friendship!
Several minute space ships
In lunar and martian orbits
Lost in wastage, yet
The friendship is everlasting ship ‘Jyothi’
To our friends of Kohima the finest future;
The present meet ‘is the god’s gift,
Fair bud to end blossom as fragrant.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
