Ghost at night


We are led by day’s routine
Some times we may feel bad and sometimes fine
Often events rule the night
We are frightened too

If some horror film is seen
That may create scary scene
Person may get up in mid sleep
That may be dangerous for composure to keep

Nights are for relaxation
Mind should not be flooded with questions
It must be kept at rest
With peace to be on test

Child memory rushes in
With mother’s kind hand and its feeling
“Sleep” else ghost may come and eat you
This element brings new phase to pass through

Little movement at window disturbs sleep
Gentle knock of wind grips you with fear to weep
You have now grown up and feel shy
You are making frantic efforts and try

You have fear of facing real ghost
That possibility is live and most
You want it not to happen
It shakes your will all of sudden

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
