HOW I WONDER~by Balachandran Nair


 

 

HOW I WONDER

“Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars
How I Wonder What You Are”,
Moms from adjacent high-risers sing
Feeding their little ones, showing stars
High above in sky, shining all the time.
.
During day time, feeding the children,
Moms repeat the song showing us,
Far below in shabby old-age home,
Roam around in despair, murmur,
Limping, falling, grinning all the time.
.
Hearing those Moms sing
We too sing in unison
Yet wise not-to let them hear,
“Humble, Humble, Scarce Scars
How We Wonder Who We Were!”
