Please Do Tell Her

Please Do Tell Her
by Rizwan Ahmed Memon

Please do tell her
That the summer has come back,
The river has started flowing,
The boats, the birds have come back,
And that I have been looking forward to her arrival.

Please do tell her
That the rains have come back,
The wind has started bellowing,
The flowers have bloomed,
And that I have been thinking about her.

Please do tell her
That the winter has passed,
The harvest is over,
The farmers are gone,
And that I have been waiting for her.

Please do tell her
That the vegetables in the fields are ripe,
The shadows of trees are dense,
The summer holidays are on,
And that I have been looking forward to her arrival.

And please ask my city girl
When she will return
To the village, to the river, to the fields, to me.
