Once when the world was still young....

ONCE WHEN THE WORLD WAS STILL YOUNG...

Once, when the world was still young,
A time, when orchids were not sold.
A time, when water neither was bottled nor brawled.
A time, when land was neither claimed nor battled.
Once, a long time ago, that young world, cherished love.

Once, when the world was still young,
Flowers bloomed there all day.
Trees claimed the sky and questioned the sun.
Chirping birds, roaring beasts and echoing winds,
Sang melancholy all day.

Once, when the world was still young,
Men and women wandered there in naked skins!
Nomads, unclad of fear and shyness were they!
Lust, greed and desire were not yet learnt!
Killing and owning were not the customs then.

Once, when the world was still young,
A time, when boundaries are not known,
Love held in heart, with no crown to run,
Men and women walked down to corners;
The corners of that young and beautiful world.

The shift of time has aged this world,
Men and women, agile, they become now!
They sail, and they fly!
Yet their land is margined and narrowed.
Rivers and seas, and even the very land they claim and own!

 Killing has become ritual and routine!
 Nature, cease to exist; money tends to fake it!
 Flowers are grown and trees are planted!
 And that very love is margined by mere words.
 Soon men and women will mourn, and will mourn alone.

Once, when the world was still young,
There prevailed love that conceived happiness.
