Pillows of silk, sheets of white satin
A world of lights and colors,
Of precious spices, exotic fruits
A world of joy and merrymaking
Behind the Rana* palace curtains
I’ve learned the mystery of love
And buried my face in her lap.
Penned poems in the white heat
Of passionate moments,
Till she cried in ecstasy:
*Rana: The Ranas were former rulers of Nepal who usurped the throne of the Shahs. Nepal is a republic since 2008 headed by a Maoist Führer named Prachanda.
