Treasure Island

Bijay Kant Dubey


Had I Been …


Had I been a painter, I would have painted and sketched
Only wild blossoms,
Their hues and beauties,
Which bloom in the forest tract and scatter away
In wilderness,
Unknown and unnoticed,
Before we could know these!

Had I been a painter,
Had I been a painter, I would have sketched and drawn
All those flowering and deflowering wild blooms,
Their beauties and colours!

God, what talent have you given to me,
Give me, give me something more,
So that I may penetrate deep,
Sketch and draw the things
As for general liking,
God, my God!

God, why have You chosen me as for delineating Your Providence
As know I not
The fairer things of Your Creation;
As those not within compass
And I a simple looker of these,
Trying to have a glimpse of Divinity
In them!
