''GANTAMULLA-HEAVEN ON EARTH''


Those lofty mountains and forests green,
those radiant scenes kiss our hearts

the first ray falls thus,
the cuckoo’s songs caressingly awaken us

the soul is tranguallized by songs
of the jehlum,
the breeze moves in a rhythmic manner

the fanatics turn more
enthsisiatic than they are,
they keep singing to themselves far and far

every object here has a unique quality about it,
every speck here is flawless

the influence of dusk is quite alien,
I wish I would dwell amoung those lofty mountains

they call it a fragment of heaven,
but I think the heaven is all here

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
