A Bloom of Poesy to dear Kamakshi


Respected, dear Madam KAMAKSHI,
This day as you voluntarily retire
From our esteemed Coach Factory,
As an officer from a coveted tier,

This ever-fresh bloom of poesy,
With heart-felt love is strung,
And is proffered very truly,
With ardent prayers sung.

A kind and affable sister,
To her colleagues here;
Her unflinching help she'd administer,
To wipe out many a tear!

With her intelligence wound,
She has crossed many a cadre;
To her duty ever bound,
She has climbed the ladder.

But from her career, bright
She has chosen to take wings;
To enjoy the wonderful twilight,
Which Life's evening brings.

Remember we will, till rest,
Is the assurance clear;
Forget-us-not is the request,
From your colleagues dear.

With fond love flowing,
From two sons—so proud;
The couple would be glowing,
With their children, beloved.

Muses' blessings to you,
To sing with a sweet voice;
Has be-got a daughter-in-law too—
A darling of a choice.

May the grand-child pin
Together your affections—all
And may you and your kin
With God's Blessings enthrall.

To war and arms I fly.
