Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


A Smile At Last


Ever since she was a baby
Never ever she was happy
Looking deep into her eyes
Heart wails and melts like ice

At a tender age losing her parents
Brought up by relatives in turns and churns
Hardly she smiled rarely she spoke
Under a dim light when everyone slept
She kept awake to do her studies

Toiling in the day doing all the chores
Comforted by none but confronted by all
Boiling with fever at times with no one to bother
Braving all the odds she sailed towards her future

Efforts of her paid dividends with a rank of state first
Offers came in the form of donors for her further studies
Taken aback all her relatives on seeing luck of golden girl
Shameless love pours around to share the success of smiling girl

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
