Campus Calling


CAMPUS CALLING


Six o'clock said the clock one morning
The sun slowly walking in
Overtaking the lone eastern cloud
Campus was calling
I yawned
Tick tock
Clock made unwanted sounds
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Hens cackling
I heard campus calling.
Saw the sun rays peeping through the hostel window
And the gentle cool breeze through the wooden door
Took the unseen mountain off my helpless back
What was once tall as the Mount Everest
Is now below my feet - waiting for the next round.
I yawned some more
Stretched on the bed
Torn between hunger and stress
And campus was still calling
Through the shrill reminder of the tick-tock
Distracting as if at Mount Annapurna
I rose off the bed
Chest full of hope
And heeded the call
Hand in hand with my books...

Poem of the Day

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.
