It Couldve Been Verse!

And The Chadar Runs

An Ode to Our Dying Rivers

And The Chadar Runs


Crumpled white sheet of snow, by her thigh, The sleeping Beaut stirs by my side,

And The Chadar Runs


Peaceful dreams flicker her eye lashes, Stretches, yawns & her wave splashes,

And The Chadar Runs


She squints at the sun, tosses & turns And the Chadar runs.

And The Chadar Runs


Peeps, smiles & sleeps one more dream, I watch her bosom swell, with each breath she takes,

And The Chadar Runs


Chadar Gorgeous I whisper & touch, She quivers

And The Chadar Runs


Winter hibernate her no more, Icy nights, a thing of yore, And the Chadar runs.

And The Chadar Runs


Wide awake, she dazzles me with her eyes green, hums a love song from the mountains she had been,

And The Chadar Runs


Throatily she laughs, As I goose-bump on her embrace, Snuggles close to my chest, last time she does,

And The Chadar Runs


Leaves her fresh breath on my neck, She kisses adieu And the Chadar runs.

And The Chadar Runs


I watch the pristine Chadar undulate away, Through the valley, with a womans sway,

And The Chadar Runs


In the know of her fate, I sigh in vain, Beauty to be soon sullied by sewage drain,

And The Chadar Runs


Polluted, tainted, dishonored by us, Ask I why, Ravaged, Oh muffled, The Chadar will cry.

And The Chadar Runs


And yet the Chadar runs. And yet the Chadar runs. And yet the Chadar runs
