Sunrise Pilio Mountain

As the tired night sank behind the mountain,

Young dawn puts radiance on his face;

The morning breeze plays soft tuneson forest trees;

Boulders bathed in Kaunsar waters;

The streams sang softly morning songs

like mothers singing lullabies

to tender infants in their arms

( Excerpt from the poem ”Daybreak” of the Kashmiri poet Moti Lal Saqi)
