SUBLIME LOVE: Maithili Poem by Dr. Shefalika Verma translated by poetess herself

Dr. Shefalika Verma


All my extended affection

The brute world did prune?

How I panted under the unbearable

Prangs and suffocations?

My love?

The wearied wide of time

Surrounds me

My tired fingers are still

Searching the worth

In life

...And you met me today

Your soft vouschafe

Did thrive my life…

Never did I hanker after

Overpowering your heart

But would share your affection

…The thirst prevailing

Life after life.

Wish your sublime love

…To sing me soft

To tender me faith…

translated by poetess herself
