Sweetheart Darjeeling

Three hours of walk uphill from the town, 
The woods grew thicker and the world down, 
Heart panting – eyes floating in the wooden beaker, 
Oh! It was dark yet darker-deep yet deeper! 
I heard Frost calling and recalled the “snowy evening”
The sky still silent-a colorful sunrise brought the morning! ! 

Which way shall I go was the question, 
Shall I obey the lessons learnt or opt to learn? 

No second thought-forgetting all I went with the flow, 
A joy in my heart the early morning seemed to glow, 
It was the bliss of the woods-the hills of Darjeeling, 
Orchids dancing and the streams began to sing, 
Valleys-trees, birds – bees , everything, 
In your heart – sweetheart Darjeeling! ! 

Every step I took- I took with regret, 
Every angle was so perfect-the heaven had set, 
A wish from my heart – oh queen Darjeeling, 
The songs of your streams-let me also sing, 
Rapids-waterfalls, tunnels-iceballs, everything, 
In your heart-sweetheart Darjeeling! ! 

Gazed and gazed-amazed was I, 
Amazement-excitement that none could hide, 
A magic in your leaves-oh majestic Darjeeling, 
The rattle with breeze-in mist playing, 
The white cymbidium-the pink dendrobium, everything, 
In your heart-sweetheart Darjeeling! ! 

I felt the mist on my face-the cold on my skin, 
Those virgin woods hidden-high, diverse yet so akin, 
Those narrow winding streams-oh darling Darjeeling, 
So lively-the multi colored birds bathe and sing, 
Teesta blue-Rangeet green-everything, 
In your heart -sweetheart Darjeeling! ! 

Oh Darjeeling, so majestic-magical and serene, 
Philosophies all at one end-alone you win, 
For the silent words you speak-you are teacher, 
Miles one must walk but never in his leisure, 
A day of leisure in the lap of Darjeeling, 
Bathes your soul-spirit, everything! ! 

Miles I’ve walked-all promises kept-regret nothing, 
Oh! Revered Frost I think you’d not seen Darjeeling! !
