To The Holy Mother -A Nonet


Autumn's Chariot heralds Mother,
Spirits arise, gusto in air,
returns Home damsel Divine,
Bright hearts, festive sublime,
Wait for a year ends,
Joyous abounds,


Grief-struck children, offer last prayers,
sweet sorrow of parting lingers,
Four days festive galore, ends,
emptiness, unheard sighs,
Reddened face, moist eyes,
Dawning Depart,
Sunken heart,

Indrajit Ghosal

P.S-- "Reddened face" is referred to the smearing of vermillon on the last day of celebration
by the women-folk.
