Treasure Island

Valsa George


Give Me...


Give me new morns with splendid sunshine
and clear blue skies
Give me fresh air with sweet whisperings of breeze
Give me quiet days sans the bustle of hectic crowds
each promising new wonders and joyous tidings
Give me country sides with luxuriant vegetation
and rich plantation
Give me woodlands of varied flora and fauna
so rare and rich that nowhere else are seen
Give me gardens and brick laid pavements
Where there grow such lovely blooms, nodding amorous
to flirting dandies on colourful wings
Give me running brooks and rushing streams
upon whose fertile banks tall trees and bushes green,
in singles and files grow
Give me orchards, beautiful and fair
with fruit laden trees, so wonderful and rare
Give me vast fields of ripening corn and paddy
where farmers joyfully gather to harvest their year’s toil
Give me vineyards of trellised vine
with hanging clusters of grapes, green and maroon
Give me ponds and wells of crystalline water
to quench the thirst and turn fallows into fecund lands
Give me woods and forest tracks
where spring lingers all the year round and beyond
and birds on tree tops merrily sit and sing
whose harmonious notes in every nook and corner ring

Oh! Give me ‘Nature in all its primal sanities’
And souls with nicety of hearts, free of all affectations! !

    What a wonderful poem, you took me to paradise with this special poem.
    Mankind destroys all this beauty, the next generation might not be able to witness beauty. Only poems like this one will tell them that we once had all these things on earth..I enjoyed reading the poem.

    The asking has its own reasons and the beneficiary poet is a representative of a clan of all of us craving for a plenty of the things desired. Unfortunately the benefactor Mother Nature has become very poor and she may struggle to meet your needs ever. A visual of the overflowing beauty still fascinates us and we remain enticed to its entities ever. A fine poem.. (Report) Reply

    the real beauty of Mother Nature can be now felt only through your poem as the real beauty is lost thanks to mankind! (Report) Reply

    Valsa George...the brooding moment when you must have conceived this poem can be felt as so fertile...one can feel the desire of flight into the world which adorned the poems of The Romantic revival...this is the product of your heightened imagination blended together with poetic art.
