Rosettes and Stripes.....


The dreams that you've dreamt,

The wishes that you've made,

All dwell at the same end,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.

He who's been searching,

Finds love and intimacy here,

No truer loyalty, no truer affection,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.

Inane he is, who doesn't find peace,

Here where desires and passion come along,

Everything fills you up with warmth and devotion,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.

The forests that sketch stories,

And langurs that plot ploys,

When Pittas amaze us with their tints,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.

Vultures ravage after the Dhole,

We humans are still left in a daze,

Of how a cuddly sloth bear could have a wild side,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.

A forest calotes on the tree of Ain,

A funnel web spider under the Tendu,

Bamboos where tigers and leopards withhold,

In the land of rosettes and stripes.
