Treasure Island

Bubloo Sen



(When I moved to Bangalore after having lived almost 40 years in Mumbai, I knew I would miss lot of things, but never thought that I would greatly miss God’s bounty in nature, a gift especially for me, and so this poem was born.)

I shall miss,
God’s bounty in nature.
I shall miss not seeing
The dark velvety night,
The shining silvery moon,
The stars so bright,
To illumine my path,
To lighten the world,
On this dark velvety night,
God’s bounty in nature,
A gift specially for me.

I shall miss the blue sky,
With clouds, so fleecy,
So soft and white,
The sunbeams shining
Through my window,
To spray me with golden light.
God’s bounty in nature
A gift specially for me.

I shall miss the trees
With the leaves on their branches
Dancing in the breeze.
The trunks of the trees,
So strong, so strong
The branches so laden,
With all shades of green,
A green for peace,
A green for the heart,
God’s bounty in nature
A gift specially for me.

The chirping of birds,
The cawing of crows,
The cooing of pigeons,
And the song of the koels too.
The flights of the birds,
From my window to see,
The blossoming flowers,
All spraying colour on me.
God’s bounty in nature
A gift specially for me.

I shall miss the rising sun in the east,
The ball of fire which reddens the sky,
I shall miss the silvery moon,
In so many shapes defined.
As the days go by,
Relationships I shall miss too,
And there will be an ache in my heart,
As I shall miss,
God’s bounty in nature
A gift specially for me.

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,
