Today’s beautiful saree , to my chest as I hold
Down memory lane, as I slowly strolled
Savouring and reliving happy memories manifold…
I remembered of a time, I was smitten, I was sold!
A saree of White, yellow, green and checks of gold
In my little sister’s trousseau, had me bowled
A desire to posses the beauty, an obsession uncontrolled
I coveted it, greed arresting me with its chokehold!!!
I went to ask her for it, the want making me bold
Stopping near her room, just before my request rolled
I broke into a sweat, you could say my feet turned cold!
I ran back to my room, fearing my mommy’s scold!!
Breaking the post wedding dole drums scaffold
To satisfy my saree hankering, which had increased multifold
I went to many a store, to see if they have any unsold
Sarees in those lovely colors, a mix that never grows old!!
I was spent, tired and almost reaching my patience threshold
When like in a movie, as distant church bells tolled
I looked at a store’s display, lo and behold!
I spied my saree, her pallu in a beautiful fanfold!!!
