Alankar (Decor) -167
Look I've let my heart float on a calm sea
Where with words it can sing and dance for me
No doubt cradling waves take it to decree
The humming wind to make it poetry
This be the heaven I'm sailing sailing
Wherever my heart goes I am going
In love with the sun and azure talking
In love with the moon and the stars singing
Then, how a sea is disturbed do you know
A storm of wild gales- may be you just know
But it is not that I want you to know
I mean how my heart of words is disturbed
Like the wild bird's prey on hunting perturbed
You disrupt my sailing heart much pestered
