Day And Night Are Ever Wedded
(Rhyme-a b a bb c b c a a)


He is all day, she is all night- matchless
Yet they got married to remain married
Their proven love has light and dark matchless
Yet she likes herself be with him carried
Now that nature's fate shouldn't be varied
She glues to him begging for path of light
With a waning mercy he throws flurried
Halfheart to her a waning moon of light
She gleams with loony moon bright though matchless
Shamed he beams mottled dark holed though matchless
