Mid-night Paro

Paro dzong in the sky of darkness

In the stillness of midnight
Breaking the loudness of the dark
Over gaze the Paro dzong
From the apex of Hungral rock

Encircle by the rays of wealth
Outshine the gloomy hours of darkness
Glittering in luminous glow
Lighten the entire valley
Paa Chu the basis of dzong glowing in the center of light

Beautiful and tranquil castle
In the heart of Paro
Like a paradise on the earth
Shall stand eye-catching and prominent

Birth Anniversary

Your magnificence
The fourth sovereign of Bhutan
Jigme Singye Wangchuk,
Dawn on 11/11/1955
Was a momentous day
Today is 56th years of that day
The day that gave you a life
Most to be cherished by all
34 anniversaries, I fail to see
But others celebrated directly or indirectly
As a infant, toddler, child, and school boy
With much delight at heart
Today as a college boy
On this significant day
I want to send your majesty
Fourth King Jigme Singye Wangchuk
Wishing of abundant happiness
Wrapped with affection
Tied with care and
Sealed with prayer
For your 56th birth anniversary
May your Majesty live long and happy ever
