Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Don't give up the virtuous means due to extreme greed!


If any person who happens to eat by begging,
…It is very pleasant that he should not get angry!

The pride of not staying isolated and
…thereby not getting too much sorrow is pleasant!

Considering the extreme greed in mind,
…It is pleasant of not getting vexed in mind
that leads to giving up the virtuous means!

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
