I ask

by - 7:20 AM

I ask for a moment’s indulgence to sit by thy side. The works
that I have in hand
 I will finish afterwards.
I ask for a moment that joy will feel the heart of my suffering Nation masses,
I ask for a moment that our leaders will fulfill their promises,
I ask for a moment that children of my nation will be truly leaders of tomorrow
Away from the sight of my face my heart knows no rest nor respite,
and my work becomes an endless toil in a shore less sea of toil.
Today the summer has come at my window with its sighs and murmurs;
and the bees are plying their minstrelsy at the court of the flowering grove.
Now it is time to sit quite, face to face with thee,
And to sing dedication of life in this silent
And overflowing leisure.
