A MEETING WITH LUCK AND A POET


It was an evening in my room,
It appeared as God knocked and came in.
I asked, “Who is it? and why such a laugh? ”
It kept silent and shed its tears

Though it seemed rich and delightful
but its face was sad and full of grief
I asked what for it came to me
and what can I do for it?

With a gasping and slurring voice
It broke its silence and told,
“Sorry! my dear man
up to your forty five I did nothing for you.

To heal the wounds in my heart
I came here to do some favour to you.”
I laughed and told,
“Sorry, you are unfortunate

and you can do nothing for me,
because I am a poet more than you,
and away from all fortunes and misfortunes.”
With face painted with disappointments
It vanished from my little room.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
