A Rakhi present

You want your bhai1 to pen a piece of art
That this struggling pen-pusher may save
A farthing and some face; ah sibling heart,
What gallant of a gift sonnet to have!
A sweet little piece of fourteen fair lines;
And ever since I stare at starry space
To get inspired by Evening Star that shines
But for a brief while with his smiling face.

I’d much rather give an off-the-shelf gift
Than run race with daunting deadlines, to pen
A piece of heart festive spirits to lift,
And so my sis, began I but in vain;
For, it would freeze me more than push for pace,
To face deadlines to me is thankless race.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
