Purveyor of Ecstasy

Miles in a coaster, a day and hours elapsed, Felt the utmost relief when the whirling wheels halted; So weary and dizzy, even a smile seemed so hideous But an in peace slumber I desperately craved for; Eyes wide-opened at the chirping of euphonious birds, Stirred myself with hankering for the glimpse of exquisite village, But still a dawn blanketed in frosty mist, sight diminished, I’d only steal the blurry scene of Tang valley; An hour after, when the glorious sun showed its perky visage, Outside I stood relishing the splendor of the hamlet And savoring the icy breeze wafting underneath my nose With succulent aroma from the Mother Nature; Amidst undulating hills and mountains down lay a quiet place, So called Tang enclosed by rich vegetation and iridescent river That embellishes the heavenly place superfluously picturesque, Enticing all man into the blissful homeland of Tang Valley; Houses clustered and down beneath the farmyard, Divine school stands with its pride upheld And hallowed veneration anyone would esteem, It is so-called Tang Central School elevated of late; Established in 1965, primary to middle since last year, Now shines the school proud and gratified of its new recognition As the central school bestowed with prerogatives and autonomy, And concurringly, rejoicing its Golden Jubilee in eons; Postures upright like inert figurines in a park, Crescendo of unripe singsong voices spring at eight and thirty, Crooning the sincere words of praise and homage to Tsa-Wa-Sum That infuses the all hearts with never like joie de vivre; A trickle of erudite whizzes and astute greenhorns Gathered deep delved into a bond of kinship with no antipathy, But an unremitting fondness amongst solicitous brethren- A purveyor of ecstasy as its depiction I call for the beautiful home.

Thank you. The poem is about my experience on my journey to Tang, Bumthang, and the delightful feelings given to me by the beautiful village. It's about the happiness i have experienced from the place i have traveled to.
