Abdul Wahab


birth of a poem


All three of the following
Gave me in same tone same answer
When I asked them to give me a poem.
At First I went to a river,
He said he would
But I would have to flow like his stream
And the wind would too
But with a condition
If I could blow like him
Being disappointed I tuned
And went to the cloud
He agreed to give me but before
Taking the poem
I would have to pour down as rain
I am a human being
How I could do all those
Being frustrated I cried a lot
Tears rolled down emotions went high
Out of that pain I gave birth this poem

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
