Acrostic poesy to Madam Suguna Ramalingam

S UGUNA, our respected Friend—so beloved,
U nto you these words are strung and garlanded.
G entle and Loving, Kind companion with benevolence,
U nderstanding and a paragon of virtue—par excellence,
N oble, with a modest wear of many an accomplishment,
A dieu, to you, this Day we bid with hearts rent.

R econciliation to the void created at this separation,
A s you relinquish I C F before due superannuation,
M ighty task, but it is, to ourselves fully acquiesce.
A t your home, now in leisure, with your consort pious,
L ife would sure be relaxed with your grand child proud.
I n your memory to retain and etch this friendly crowd,
N ow this memento is presented by caring souls so loved.
GOD Almighty and SRI SATHYA SAI BABA—to profusely shower
A mple blessings on you and your kin as done ever,
M oist eyes sincerely pray for Happiness to ever flower.

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
