Daily Poem: The Snake Charmer ~ Sarojini Naidu
The Snake Charmer ~ Sarojini Naidu
Translated from Pashto by Saduddin Shpoon
Whither dost thou hide from the magic of my flute-call?
In what moonlight-tangled meshes of perfume,
Where the clustering keovas guard the squirrel’s slumber,
Where the deep woods glimmer with the jasmine’s bloom?
