Diya Das’ poems range from simple and sweet-
Pitter-patter. Pitter-patter. / It’s raining today. / Pitter-patter. Pitter-patter. /
It’s raining on a Saturday. Raining on a Saturday.
To emotional and thoughtful-
Whisper softly in my ear / Those words I don’t know / Tell me everything I always wanted / Teach me how to let go. Whisper Tonight.
