After all it was the wedding of their darling Princess
Rubies, Emeralds and Diamonds adored ubiquitously

By multiple bearers of the troupe
To the sages deep in woods and wild
In the valleys of Vindhyaas
In hope to treat their enchantress
To bring back vivacity in her life

Troupe reached the embankment
River Breeze touched her gently
She turned her head up and looked around

“Stop the Palanquin!” She ordered
Closing her eyes, she escaped into the Styx

“Love found its way, not so long ago,
I shall find her, never again too late”
