Lily describes the break of a day in this poignant verse.
As the day breaks in another
era in time
As the cocks crow the rising of another sunshine
As the birds unfurl their feathers and sing a merry song
As the Rose spreads its blood in the pulsating throng
I think of another time in life.
As milkmen tie milk pots to their roaring motor bikes
As sheep and goats tinkle their bells on their hikes
As temple bells peal the morning divine chime
As aazaans call the faithful to
Bow at prayer time
I think of another time in life
As women light fires for the first cup of tea
As men jog on tracks for a body fit to see
As kids yawn in beds to knock off their sleep
As puppies jump and frisk to poke prod and peep
I think of another time in life!
