Treasure Island

PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

(29-06-1976 / Guskara-Burdwan)

I am for 'Yes'....


Never say 'No' if you don`t have to...
'No's are caterpillars.
They give bad itches to soft minds!
Ugh! They squirm like creepy-crwalies!

'Yes' with a beam feels a good sunshine!
calls many to bathe in pleasant light.
Timely 'Yes' can save wreckage and ruin!
Who does not love to see a morning fair and bright?

'Yes' comes out faster than a 'No'...
'No' stomps and thuds; hits and hurts!
'Yes' walks and runs; gallops and soars!
One 'Yes' outweighs a hundred 'No's.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
