    Distant bells ... 1905 - 2k13

    Not for a trice feel a wayward twinge
    for distant bells that hollow ring
    familiar creak of the wooden loft
    loving caress to a cheek so soft

    so hold your child and merrily sing
    to hug him dear and arms fling
    savor the morning's early dew
    tis the love that but earn a few

    look the eye of your beaming beau
    the glint therein that you watched grew
    in your frock and braid and held flower
    the sun the moon and shining star

    the well worn stair, forward deck
    wizened eye that seeks your beck
    feline grace of your cat’s stretch
    topped pail, in which you water fetch

    sing and dance and take a step
    to homely kitchen and roasting prep
    tumblers stacked and the slanty mop
    from window watch that ye often hop

    This poem is done as first, in a series of three, portraying three different lives of women.
    A very popular series (soap opera like published series) in my home country is called ...'teen aurten teen kahanian' (Urdu)
    translation.... three women three stories
    i have tried to be non judgmental and just portrayed what the minds eye sees.
    There is no bias involved or preference, just a poetic rendering of what i see around me.
    Yes.... just my impressions.
