Treasure Island

Valsa George

A Shipboard Romance (sequel.No.3)

The man and woman met at a mall by coincidence
Though a chance meeting, it turned out to be of great relevance
The same sensation that once united them, they now had in exuberance
But each felt shy to divulge it through frank admittance
Days went on without any significant occurrence
Both knew their hearts, growing fonder through absence
Heightening their need for each other to live in allegiance

Though visited the mall often, hoping to see perchance
Every time, they failed through sheer mischance
On a cloudy day when the rain started pouring down in great vehemence
The lady lingered in the mall having no conveyance
The man, spotting her offered a ride which she accepted with hesitance
Between them several moments crawled by without utterance,
Finally she mustered some courage to break the silence.
In a tone of great regret she told, she was all repentance.
The man conceded, most of his notions on marriage were sheer nonsense.
They now realized, their failings in life had been through impudence
They, henceforth decided to live together in mutual acceptance
And never to torment each other through intolerance

Instead of dropping her at her residence
He took her to his house, which badly needed her assistance
Now both realized that marriage is not one of convenience
But more of concordance and coexistence, demanding great forbearance
An enduring relationship, they knew, could be built only on mutual acceptance
And could be sustained through mammoth levels of tolerance and compliance

That night with the stars peeping and all anxiety kept in abeyance
Their union was consummated in true deliverance
(Thus on VALENTINE'S DAY, the couple got reunited in love)

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
