WAKE UP NOW - D.C. Chambial (India)



-         D.C. Chambial (India)


How long to sleep

and waste time

that waits for none?


Must wake up now

sun’s stridden

through the frosty chill.


Look for some work

noble than to spoil life

like a boar in bog.


Dark night has given in

to bright light

make hay while the sun shines


lest golden moment

should be lost

in intermission.
