A dry rivulet


A dry rivulet remembers her days
when it was the spring of her life
the rivers then tried to put her in bosom
any meadows were made fertile

Children came to bath and play
cattle came to quench their thirst
birds came to make a dive
the rivulet was in her full youth
like a damsel of paradise

Realm of the rivulet was quite verdant
plethora of her beauty attracted all loving guys


After every spring, autumn comes
made her to suffer from low - esteem
her tears have been swallowed
not left to shed for even a drop

My poetic heart finds a dropp of tears
to lend on her dry eyes
to shed on her bygone days.

    Ramesh,
    Your poem reminds me of my bygone days in my native place in Sind (now Pakistan) .That river was so full after the rainy season that we just had the time of our lives, ejoying bathing, eating mangoes and going for a picnic; your poem is similar. I liked the words { like a damsel of paradise) . Oh! whenneth commeth those days? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
