For A Beautiful Face Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

For a beautiful face all that I could do
Give all my pleasures and take all her woe.

For a beautiful face all that I could do
Leave all my friends or make them my foe.

For a beautiful face all that I could do
make myself a pauper and let all my esteems go.

For a beautiful face all that I could do
Let my wishes perish to make her wishes flow.

For a beautiful face all that I could do
to make her a peacock could look like a crow.

    I always enjoyed reading your poems Ray sahab. They have great irony, and u know how to tell a thing poetically. I remembered a lyric sung by Mukhesh

    Aesthetics fade, but in absolute love, there is a more captive beauty within, and beyond any exterior attraction.Very Nice Write, Palas...The couplet stanzaec sructure works well, here.
