A Sonnet On ‘ Conjoined’ Sisters - Poem by Ramesh Iyengar

A Sonnet on ‘ conjoined’ sisters
- Ramesh Iyengar

[ school pals Miss. Thaslima and Miss. Priskilla ]

Ah well! bonny sisters blessing endowed
From which wond’rous womb dost thou descend?
Oft-seen spotted as Gemini stars forever
By human agency seldom torn asunder.
In classroom, dorm or corridor elsewhere
Never torn, parted, cleaved but, together.
Black as thy skins outwardly seem
Yet, in grace, virtue, the friendship gleam.
Art thou Siamese twins in full beam
Or ‘ by birth-conjoined ’ as medics claim?
In faith, creed in practice differ,
In amity, affection by nature’s confer.
Excel in learning, friendship pals sweet
Forever, forever fixed remain so concrete.

- Ramesh Iyengar
