Treasure Island

Rajesh Thankappan

(Guwahati)

A Patch Of Greenery


The summer sun hover
In the midday hour
Over my head;
Blazing hot and red.
I made a retreat
From the midsummer heat
Under a shady tree
With birds singing sweet.
Seeing buildings soar
In multitudinous horde;
I wish for more trees
To be within my reach.
I rested on a cot
With a book I had brought
Leaves murmured sweet
In a most splendid dream!

    Sitting in the shade of a tree and poring over a book of absorbing interest and listening to the twitter of birds and the murmur of leaves is heaven! Enjoyed your summer retreat and your pastime! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
