“The marigold, whose courtier’s face
Echoes the sun, and doth unlace
Her at his rise, at his full stop
Packs and shuts up her gaudy shop”.
(John Cleveland – English poet, 1613–1658)

In my daydreams the ghats take the appearance of staves ready for musical notation and this young man is a clef indicating the pitch of written notes on this poetic music paper.
Then the marigold becomes a dotted note on the line.
With a little of imagination anything is possible along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
