A quintessential folk song from the Malwa region of Punjab.


Kaleya harna ve
Tere peeriN chanjhraN paiyaaN
Chabban nu tere


Black deer, black deer
roaming the wilds
jingle-jangle anklets
horns inscribed
with myriad forms
and many a size
a partridge here
a fowl in flight
maize and oats
was all your diet
flapping long ears
ringed with pride
stretching your body
you leapt new heights
ditches too narrow
now bring new fright
leaping across
one such you cried
in pain and shame
you quietly died.
