Elegy for a Student
by Prof. Dr. Anil K. Prasad
Bookmark and Share
 
The Green City
Has turned gray,
The moon is drained out
Of her colour,
The house is shattered,
Shocked are the people,
The relatives, the stars
The friends, the fraternity
As you suddenly stopped
Breathing with the sudden
Arrest of the muscles
In your heart.
 
In cold winter nights
A mother moans,
Bewailing the loss:
The beloved daughter
Has departed:
So loving, and caring,
And self-effacing;
A noble soul! 
 
“God loves those, die young,”
Does not give relief
To the sister whose eyes
Have been swollen-red
Since you departed, and
Those when heard about
The unexpected end:
Their world  missed
A thousand heavens.
 
The only solace is this
That you are always there
Even in your absence
You are the air that
Moves around them
Invisible, you are
The fragrance that
Is not seen
But lingers even
After the flower
fades away.
