Maithili Poem Unquenched thirst Dr. shefalika verma, Translated by Dr. Anamika, Dept.of English Satyawati college, Ashok Vihar, Delhi University


I asked for a drop of water
My thirst loomed larger than the ocean
A maid in penance I was
Nothing could lure me , for sure.
Clouds floated by without a drop of rain
In my yard
Yet my heart knew no complaints
My heals hot on desert sands
Di not even crave
For a shadow

Away from shore
Caught up in a whirlpool
I leapt up like a wave
With woes unsung
And glories all undone
My dreams were drenched in
The rain of tears
I held my pain in a drop
Un-shed

The rays of light scattered
With many ifs and buts
How could you tell the fragrance
From the flower ?
I was crushed in the arms of darkness

Wherever you are I am here
With you
Nothing in or beyond life
Can break us apart
Even when you are not around
My songs of sufferings
Keep us bond…………….
