Treasure Island

SAKTHI RAVICHANDRAN

(18.07.1964 / THANJAVOORE/TAMILNADU/INDIA)

A diamond in the pebbles


A diamond in the pebbles



She smiles and talks as a star

to cheer me up when I am low,

Her smiles and talks are my herb

to cure all my pains and ills



She may come from a poor pebble

but a bright diamond among us,

Our home may be thatched cottage

her palace is full of love and peace

Her dresses may be old and torn

but she bears a royal touch



A poor father of that angel,

I pray some one to come down

from heaven to take her hand

and make my dream come true

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
