Euterpe – A poem on the sad demise of Lata Mangeshkar Written by Muhammad Shanazar


A poem on the sad demise of Lata Mangeshkar

Written by Muhammad Shanazar


Ah! You perennial nightingale!
You have parted precipitately,
But who says you have passed away,
Death did not sojourn you to give you death,
It came to escort you to the world next,
Yes, you are now needed there much more,
To me it is not death
Rather you have reached the shore,
You are alive but in the form of waves,
Waves of songs which resound
In each metropolitan, city, town,
Village and the farthest lonely hut,
Your soothing songs are always with us,
Death has taken you from us
To perch you on a high pedestal,
And like Euterpe,
The ancient goddess of Greek
You have in your mouth a flute to blow
Upon which your fingers move
To shape breath into melodious melodies,
And in front of you pass on moments of time,
Bowing, lowering their heads in esteem,
Each one feel humble while it pays you tribute,
I recall my early days, when I became ecstatic,
Swayed by your notes, played on the recorder,
And on the end of each song, I fell from the sky,
Onto the world of drudgery,
No one could resist the spell of your melodies,
Even now they have the same impact
When listened.
I have a faith you will do the same
In the world next,
As you rendered the role in the world previous,
But your departure caused the wound grievous.
