How my poems born


Once I went to a river
And asked him to give me a poem
He said he would with one condition
If I could flow like his stream

Being dejected I came back
And went to the cloud
He promised to give me one
But I was asked to pour like rain

Next I went to the door
Of the wind for the same
He too asked me to blow like him

I am a human being
How I could do all those
I cried a lot in sorrow and pain
Out of which this poem is born

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
