Now, Those Days Are gone For Good…by Maithili Sharan Gupta 

Now those days are gone for good 

Though heart’s sap swells in us still

It is body’s once stout trunk 

that, drained so,  lacks will

Rains rode by and left their stamp of lightning;

Winter withdrew and left us with its chill; 

Leaving behind their sulky heats for remembrance ,

How many springs have crossed the barren hill? 

Only God knows whether 

     the gaming meant gain or loss for our skill, 

but who can gainsay one win? 

Songs gone for good, their echo lifts us still.
