Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Her wisdom


I turned down her proposal
As it needed quick disposal
She was making it conditional
Either “yes” or”no” was the option

We loved compassionately
It had grown more lately
We knew it will be difficult
To live without may amount as an insult

I failed to understand logic behind
I tried hard but failed to find
What can be the urgency in matter?
She told it will be disclosed later

So many things matter in girl’s life
It is considered as an edge of knife
They have to look after their interest
As well as other back ground to the best

I had rural background with some reservation
We believed in frankness but with limitation
This was making her hesitant to withdraw
Even though I had not failed her intention to draw

Liberty and freedom for woman is essential
It may draw some irritation initially
Finally it ends up in compromise
As life is wide and open with promises

I left it to her wisdom
I knew it will be turned down seldom
But it was open to her freedom
I extended all wishes including welcome

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
