Life’s Philosophy

When withered leaf departs from treeand sings in tune her plaintive songs,and obscure souls retire and fleeabandoning all earthly wrongs;when sparkling stars of the mystic skyembrace this Earth in their dreamless sleep,and the beauteous streams with elegance drybiding their bye to the colossal deep!I behold the Sphere, this world of pains,the golden crowns and the…

If Only

If only I could make you seeThrough these amorous eyes of mine,You’d leave the world and worship theeThinking your flesh divine.And all the wars of every kindWould cease without a fight,And in every dark night you would findYour own self flickering bright. If I only I could make you hearThrough these adoring ears of mine,And…

Farewell

With lasting memories, tears and woesWrapped like a dream and sealed with a rose, And with a dolorous heart away from scentHow shall I ever forget to lament?How shall I forget with poignant eyesThose beguiling days, yea days that cries?Or like a pitiless stone not weave my rhyme,My desolate art that dread not time!And forget…

If I Were A Hero (ABC Poem)

Above huge hills if ever I could rise,Beyond the gravity as Iron Man flies.Climbing and hanging if towers I could touch,Dashing as the Spider-Man, if fingers were such.Ever I would be happy and ever I would dance,Falling and rising in heroic romance. Grasping high hills if ever I could rise,Huge, tough and rigid, if Hulk…

A Song of Life

How darkly fair this fleeting lifeWith many a puzzling bend,By facing terrors of countless strifesWe voyage towards its end. We know not where the tough road goes,Or what future doth wait;But moving ahead amidst all woesIs the concealed voice of fate. And hearts that seem like silken roseIn this eternal way,Strangely turn in foreign foesWith…

A Letter from the Sky

If somehow all your plaintive pleasdon’t reach my ears tomorrow,if all sweet dreams you dreamt of metake shape of grief and sorrow. If somehow all get crush on youand they get on their knees,and you find all pleasures, false or truebut get no more of me. I wish so much you would not crywith your…

Do You Want?

Part: I Do you want to meet a dauntless manwho has power to change this Sphere,whose untold might and glimpses canshake each trembling fear? Whose sword amidst the twilight flares,whom sorrows can’t overwhelm;whom nothing can stop, nay curse nor prayersto beat and win his realm. Who rules over each harrowing nightwith a heart of sacred…

Dread No More

Dread no more the darkling sky,Nay, the thousand vicious blows;For the gloom is brief and so shall dieLike weird feeling that daily goes. And again shall shine the golden sun,And soon shall flow the tender breeze;And play the kids, do leap and runIn the fair meadows with charming trees. And again shall rush in human…

Lines of Hope

The brook that can’t find way in sandsOf barren lands with haunted souls,Oh, never does lose her hope but bendsTo make her route through silver goals. The sun who hides his rays in clouds,In besmirched charm with dusty fumes;Oh, never does swathe himself in shroud,But shines again to gild his rooms. The birds that can’t…
