A Golden Statue of Radha-Krishna Cast In Gold Unearthed From The Ruined Temples


From the debris of the terracotta temples,
Built ages ago and centuries old,
Made from limestone powder and small bricks,
A small of Radha and Krishna arsing out,
The spade falling upon with a clink
And a golden statue
Made from pure gold
But blackly coated appearing on
From the fallen walls of the temples.

A golden but blackly-coated, I do not know, as for what,
For lying intot the earth
Or blackly coated to hide the public gaze,
O, how, how to behold,
O, how, how to keep it
The thing of the museum,
Of the temples olden and histriographical,
Dilapidated and fallen,
O, from the rubble and debris of,
Have I my Radha and Krishna!

The statue a gift from the Divine,
History, art, clture and tradiiton,
Looking black, but made form pure gold,
Weighing heavy,
Blackly-coated, but golden,
Lying earthed into the foundation wall,
Fallen pillars and colums of the ruined temples,
Dilapidating and falling,
Abandoned and deciphering,
Neglected and ignored,
The small-smal terracotta temples made
From limestone powder and bricks.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
