FAIRY TALE

Written by: RAJAT KANTI CHAKRABARTY

What is love? 
The Princess asked the little fairy
Who was wet in premature rain.
'My obeisance to thee, Princess,
It is like rain, immature rain'
The Princess looked at the morror
And smiled.
What is love?
The princess asked the little fairy
Who was hungry for food.
'My obeisance to thee, Princess
It is like the hungry man waiting for lush meal'
The Princess looked at the mirror
And smiled.
What is love?
The Princess asked the little fairy
Who was too frail to float in air for long.
'My obeisance to thee, Princess,
It is like a honey-bird losing honey-trail' 
The Princess looked at the mirror
And smiled.
What is love?
The Princess asked the little fairy
Whose pinions were almost folded.
'My obeisance to thee, Princess,
It is like broken wings to be healed'
The Princess looked at the mirror
And smiled.
Now, what is love after all?
The Princess asked the little fairy
Who was almost dead tripping and falling.
'My obeisance to thee, Princess,
It is like death waiting for rebirth'
The Princess looked at the mirror
It was broken.
