Danube Island
A Pathya Vat poem by Palak Tewary

You, who captured my heart, are
miles afar and too far out of reach.
The sandy dunes on the desolate beach,
where a piece of heaven resides.

There lives a magic in you
that can turn, even the tides.
Closing my eyes, I feel your glides,
oh, crystal river, I wish you were near.
