Good old days!

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
Where farmers had their seasonal songs to sing
and nomads had their seasonal space to swing,

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
Where crops and barleys barely fails to yield
In the midst of many many large fields,

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
Where all enjoy the warmth of winter Sun
With little tittle-tattles of so much fun,

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
Where grannies go round and round the stupa
to earn their little last merit of Nangpa,

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
where offerings and sacrifices are made in abundance
in the name of three traditional region’s Independence,

Gones are good old days as he says
In many many different ways as she says
Where monks and nuns do their daily prayers
for peace and ease of any other affairs,

  4. I loved ‘Good Old Days’ It reminded me of my childhood days when life was very different from today.


  5. I admit to only having learned to appreciate poetry by reading the poetry of Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. Your poetry of course has its own distinct flavour and insight. I found it wonderfully interesting to read.

      I have also heard about him a lot but didn’t remember reading his works, will surely checkout his poetries.

  6. Thank you so much for following Tip of My Iceberg. I’m grateful for the time you took to read it. Your poetry is beautiful–very insightful. I’ll return the favor–you have some wonderful ideas.


  7. Nice to meet a kindred spirit in poetry. I write fiction and essays mainly but occasional post an original poem. I also like to share poems and related poetry books. Can you tell me what “around the stupa means”?

    Hi Sonam

    Thanks for the follow *, as the reason I write is to share.
    * (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

    # By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

    * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

    “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

    Who says men can’t multi-task!

    Kind regards and happy writing

    “early bird” (very) * craig
    * my “best” time (by far)

    “You will do foolish things…but do them with enthusiasm.”
    – Colette


    Best wishes from the First City to see the sun (in summer) …and we’re also the first to see the sunset and the stars (in winter-time)

    “I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”


  9. Hello!
    Is this by you?
    “I have enough time to rest, but I don’t have a minute to waste”. Come and catch me with your wise words and we will have some fun with our words of wisdom.”
    I love it!
    Thank you.
    RitaK- ready to have fun with you!

  10. You are a true freedom fighter. Your words in this song ring like those of K’naan, the other famous freedom fighter who sings songs about his motherland in the most magical way. Are you familiar with him?

    1. Thank you so much, I always think I have more time for the cause of my country than for myself and your words encouraged and inspired me a lot. I will surely read about him.
