Village Chorus

a poem by Gummadapu Narasimha Rao

Village chorus sing songs sweet in green fields
Just band hard when render deeds those candid,
Trust the chants relent harvest and boost yields
I quest lore cores what help needs bards placid?

Change rhymes and tunes to suit exact seasons
Wipe out stress and strain the mellow rhythms,
Croon yore yells, still tell tales of those regions
Carols, spell myths and mystics of past themes.

No written scripts! brain mantle is only source
Eras ere, change true themes and trill new calls,
Aged the sane guild, and stand as rare resource
Chorus, reveal culture scarce through the shrills.

I swear and compile those songs that serve well
Scan the scripts and print them future use of all.
