Treasure Island

Savita Tyagi


Before You Bid Adieu


O sweet breathe of life
Stay with me a little longer
Be my companion
I still have to find the bird
Hidden among those green leaves
You know the one
That sings every day to welcome the dawn
I still have to walk on green grass
To hold some dewdrops
Pure and cold dribbles
Of night’s innocent child
Before you leave me
I do want to have a word or two
With the squirrel
To fix a time to have our tea together
You see Monarchs would soon be coming
On their path of migration
May be some will stop on the roses
For a little rest
O sweet life force
There is still so much left unknown to me
But if it is time to bid adieu
Be kind and gentle
Let my eyes not turn back for once
When you hold me by your hand
To float ad infinitum
Over the rainbow
Beyond the blue sky
Where Muses sing
And Menka dances
In the wide realm of calm and peace.

    The sun may set and darkness enclose
    Forever one fine day for us to float
    To better spheres with sweeter airs
    When we our faults and good honestly disclose.....

    Very good write Madam. Even beyond the mysterious curtain there is hope. (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
