A Poet And His Muse - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay
The only poet I saw from any close
never married his muse
wrote poems for her
offered her rose
but when she asked to tie the knot
found an excuse!
love's road ends in marriage
when he told her this
with on her forehead a gentle kiss
she got a shock
the poet cleverly averted wedlock!
they had a prolonged affair
each day he gave her a new name
each day she inspired a new poem
each time she proposed marriage
umpteenth time he would repeat the adage
love's road ends in marriage.
thus nailed with wisdom and parried
on the tenth year she married
and soon the poet forgot his coined adage.
He wedded a woman half his age!
