From 136 poetries one of the poem named “Final Journey”:
Decorate me in marigold and champa In asopalav and rajanigandha Write for us those beautiful poems of life Play with us those memorable songs of legacy O ! dear little ones ! Embalm’ with sandalwood and sindoor paste Becalm troubled thoughts of the wayward mind Unlock the doors of memory to refresh times Acclaim the cherished happy moments lived through Hear those soft silent steps in the rustle of autumn Feel the blessings of music, of joyous springs Rejoice with the bounty and splendour of nature Seek your own little world of beauty and buoyancy Create your vast open sky of freedom, fortitude Opt not for opulence but optimism of life’s values Care not for fame and prestige but life’s humilityPoem from Nostalgia
