BARD OF THE NATION! O bard of the nation!Your magical journey is done;The caravan has conquered all the hearts, the honour you, winning;The masses are near, the voice is echoing, the natives all rejoicing,All eyes eagerly fixed on you, the air gloomy and grim:But O eyes and ears! Eyes and ears! Ears and eyes!O the moving breaths of life stopped,AdvertisementWhere on the stature my Mahakavi lies,Sleeping cold and dead.O BARD OF THE NATION! O bard of the nation!Get up and listen to the voices with passion;Get up- for you, the audience is eager- for you the words trills;For you garlands and decorated stage- for you the air shrills;For you they clap, the convincing crowd, their gloomy faces turning dim;Here Mahakavi! Greatest lyrist!The voice that mesmerized million with the sound;Some bad seen that fallen on the stand sans resist,You are sleeping cold and dead.O BARD OF THE NATION! O bard of the nation!The Mahakavi does not sing, his face is pale and no motion;The national bard does not feel any touch nor has he will or pulse;The voyage is driven in style and sound, won and stopped the cruise;From fiery excursion, the winner's vessel reaches in with purpose win;Take pride, O stage, and audience, O chimes!But I, with woeful head,Pace the floor my Bard lies,Sleeping cold and dead.Mahakavi: The greatest post or the poets' poet.Neeraj: Dr.Gopal Das Neeraj, popularly known as Neeraj who died on Thursday, July 19,2018, in Delhi, India. He was the recipient of Padma Bhushan.Caravan: Group of travellers
