Words:Waman Nimbalkar

Waman Nimbalkar
Words

Words it is that set aflame houses, homes, countries,
Men as well.
 Words extinguish even the fire
In men set aflame by words.
Where it not for words, the sparks of fire
Would not have fallen from men’s eyes,
Great floods of tears would not have flowed.
No one would have come near
Nor have gone far away
were it not for words.


Translated by  Graham Smith
