India: On Independence Day

So dark and lovely, wrapped in ancient mystique,
Pointing back into the world before any history,
Serenely singing songs long held in Vedic mystery,
So strongly enduring the ages yet purely meek

Now banners fly with freedom’s flag held high
In memorial of everything done for liberty won,
Prizing peace with all neighbors under the sun,
And to never shun humble strength to exemplify

What festivity is festive enough for such people,
Who trace their roots to the earth’s foundation,
Other than the joy of such sacred reclamation
Of independence celebrated like soaring eagle?
