RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

Rookie - 18 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

DEAD BIRD.


Till yesterday, it sat
On the powerline,
And the tree in the yard,
Sang soulful songs,
In different tunes,
Calling for it's mate,
Today it lay dead
On the street,
Not noticed by none,
Sometimes crusehed
By the passing vrhicles,
Spreading it on the road,
Of the remains it had,
I can't listen to its song
No more, took it's dead body
To the transh bin,
For it's burial somewhere.

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.
