TRAILING BACK TO BRIDAL VEIL
English Translation: V.Vijaya Kumar
Telugu Original : Dr K.Geeta
I took Thou from distance a painting drawn through brush
But when come near
As if the sky shower the stars down sudden
Thy drape of sprinkles turned into
Thou exquisite beauty bringeth bumps on the body!
Rapt of stunning joy not to let the steps back!
How ready You’re! O Bridal Veil!
Dashing down to Yosemite Valley!
Thou sight maketh blood gush and push us in!
On Thy slithering water foams I wish I’d tumble down!
Tucking Thy water trails into plait
And I wish I could sheath flowers in it!
Moonlight that crept like vine at forest front
I wish I could have dabbled it on Thou!
We’ve no multiple hearts to fill
Thy rapturous sprinkles of joy
We’ve no numerous hands to cull
Thy flooding thousand springs of arrows
After all ! Those grueling pains!
Before Thy thousand blooming smiles!
Any World’s nothing when Thy rapt draped up whole!
I wish I could be a meadow flattened like a table land
Lying midst Thy stream around guarded summits!
Gazing into Thy eyes tilting aside
I wish I could smile like Thou in a cool rustling spree.
A post graduate in English literature and language and in Economics. A few of my translations were published. I translated the poems of Dr. Andesri , Denchanala, Ayila Saida Chary and Urmila from Telugu to English. I write articles and reviews to magazines and news papers. To the field of poetry I am rather a new face.
