Nepalese Time by Emma(2007)

Rhyme, rhyme, Nepalese time.

Slow, slow, we wait, we wait.

Muddy road, Western faces.

There is random rhyme to this pace.


Endless and slow, we wait, we wait,

An entrance to India, make haste, make haste.


Prayer, prayer, on the wings of life.

Slow, slow, beyond time, beyond space

On the wings of angels, we wait, we wait,

an entrance to poverty and yet more strife.


Endless and slow, Western white faces.

An entrance to India, we wait, we wait.
