Poem Title: Bangle Seller Girl By: Dr. N. M. Leepsa
Oh beautiful girl, the future bride Buy those colorful bangles from me I can see endless love for person on your side With whom your entire life you want to be.
Our life is like a roller coaster ride Of drops of blood, sweat, and tears Still, we see brighter side of life with pride Because of the customer like you who cares
The heavy rain and the piles of dust Along with clouds of storm & so tough Buried my trade for many days in heaps of rust You have come like new day & a ray of hope
You have flawless face with best of youth Bangles will add beauty to your naked & bare hands I will get enough to spend from hands to mouth And this artist toil will not go vain in sands
Show your hands for those bangles that shine Help this mother's hand, this heart will bless I will also go home as I have to wait for child of mine When all will praise you again come me, come to this place
