Glittering Stars and the Surging Wind

Do you see the stars shining up the skies
Winking quietly as we stare up?

Do you feel the winds surging about the hamlet
Pushing all on its way, to and fro?

Now the stars are mild, taciturn and free
And they shine tonight with wooing airs
The quietness that come with the night
Confirm its unison, its oneness with the glittering stars

The winds bring its strength upon the surface
Rushing sand dusts into peoples eyes and homes
Pulling the shrubs up and disturbing all life
She oppresses womens gown, laughing with abandon

But even so, the stars glitter
As the wind play her trick
On the quiet hamlet
