And She Started Trembling!
There she was, staring at me,
by Md. Ziaul Haque
I could not see her clearly,
Yet felt that she wanted to enter,
I went to the window to have a look at her.
She had her extreme elegance,
My skin started feeling her presence,
I couldn't control myself, speaking honestly,
Just started tasting with my eyes her beauty.
A dog's barking on regular intervals I could hear,
Yet I concentrated on her glow,
That perhaps just then I alone came to feel, to know.
I decided to mix myself with her existence,
Removing all the distance,
Dragged myself towards the window,
And moved the curtain little so.
I wasn't afraid of anyone,
This was to be done,
While through the window I let her come in,
Something happened, she and I started trembling!
-In the poem, 'she' refers to the moon. The speaker wants to feel the moonlight in a better manner. That's why, he goes to the window to move the curtain so that the light can enter the room in abundance. However, an earthquake makes its presence felt and the speaker starts trembling and he thinks that the moon is trembling as well.
