A Day at Dona Paula

This active vocabulary jabbers that riveting name
Albeit unknown to the old viceroy’s daughter’s fame!
For Lil Anvi, it’s the pristine beach of Dona Paula
brimming with the feel of a French ‘viola’
Teeming with the glory and riveting beauty,
How pristine the beach appears for my cutie!
The intricate rhymes of the lovers paradise
humming an ineffable beauty’s sacrifice
The untold sagas of a viceroy’s dazzling daughter
and the fisherman pulsate here in the serene water
The romantic myths go on
The enticing stories move on
Unmindful of the umpteen annals, Lil Anvik chills dearly
Dona Paula and the ‘beech’ allures him clearly
There in, he poses for a pic with me
His sinless, rapid query din let me free
When dad captured ‘A Dona Paula ‘ Moment
His query demanded a reply in an instant.
“Why is Dona Paula broken?
Without healing, she may worsen.
Lil Anvik’s artless query engrossed me for a while
The unrequited void instills in all viewers, a smile
The broken statue hides her hidden pangs
Symbolically, she weeps and bangs
For me, she remains lil Anvi’s dearest Dona Paula
All set to flaunt its flavour with a French ‘viola’

Dedicated to my darling munchkin, Master Anvik Sujeeth!
