I personally like this the following stanza: Rodonaka dhuve, ani suzainaka dolhe ani aattach disani tuka apovnck etawn pole (Don’t cry, dear daughter, and don’t allow your eyes to swell within just eight days we shall bring you home again!) How true these days to some of us? After eight days never to return again!! Laugh, Laugh, just laugh!
