    Narayan Surve's My Mother

    When the stars go off
    Tall chimney-sirens sound
    Daily with fast steps
    Marching to the mill
    Who looked backwards
    And told us so lovingly
    "Do not fight with anyone"
    Gave us two paise
    On the day before Dasara
    She went with five of us
    To see the festival
    We bantered in the lanes
    What a great pleasure
    Beyond words
    We returned with balloons
    And whistles and pipes
    We became birds

    What happened of one day
    They brought her in a cart
    Her eyes were open
    Blood gushed from her mouth
    Her partner saluted
    Came near, caressed us and said 'Balu'
    We saw mutely everything
    We searched our umbrella
    Our roof, our mother.

    That night we five
    Stuck closer and
    Wrapped up to the coverlet
    Taking it to be mother's affection
    Already we had nothing
    Now there was even no mother
    We awake all night
    letting tears
    Now we became fully unattached.
