Congratulations & Appreciations to Neharika Baswa -VIII std
Poem published in IJELLS (International Journal of English:Literature Language and Skills) Volume 5 specialissue.
Reaching out welcomingly to the sky, So amazingly far and infinitely beyond
What above it does lie? A million uniquelyseparate galactic bonds?
A free being sonorously miniscule
With not a nagging care at all
Battling away on life’s hardy duel
Till my pitiful death call
Merely a tiny not
Truly and surely humungously vast
Quite soon it gently unfurled
Mangling mischief and curiosity it cast
Utterly purposeless – a creature
Some withered people appallingly define
Am I not an important feature
In this God – given life that is mine
Swiftly soaring through with no painful strife
Nothing at all to incessantly fret or regret
A dull being so little ha an unforgettable life
Alas! The heartless cruel being did forget
The mourning bells did painfully ring,
I quickly breathed my last
For me no birds did chirp or sing
Life nimbly swayed away right past
Upon my rugged deathbed – a dusty, dirty road
Off my little feet did the heavy vehicle throw?
I finally go to my deserving abode
Can one spare even the little life of a crow?
