To India- My Native Land – Henry Louis Vivian Derozio

My country! in your days of glory past
A beauteous halo circled round your brow,
And worshipped as a deity you were...
Where is that glory, where that reverence now?
your eagle pinion is chained down at last
And grovelling in the lowly dust are you;
Your minstrel has no wreath to weave for you
Save the sad story of your misery
Well — let me dive Into the depths of time,
And bring from out of the ages that have nailed
A few small fragments of those wrecks sublime,
Which human eyes may never more behold:
And let the guerdon of my labour be
My fallen country! One kind wish from you!



NOTE: The Above Poem has taken from Tamil Nadu Text Book.
