RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

(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.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
