In A Darkling Night - Poem by Pijush Biswas
I was walking through a road,
Diverged into two directions ahead
In a darkling and gloomy mood
Of the night, which threads
Both, hope and despair
In a pair.
I could not understand
Which direction I have to go
Right hand? or left hand?
I had to bow
Down my will before the growing gloom
Of the night in search of my doom.
I was perplex'd
And could not count
What direction to go
And thickness began to mount
Before I started to draw
Any trace of human being
And was shrunken my brow.
Suddenly, a lady with lamp
Coming towards my way
Chanted loudly by the name of Ram
As fear struck her heart
As the destination far away.
She comes closer to me
And a light of hope rose in mind
Which helped me to breathe free
A lady of grace, so kind
Asked me 'Lets go where to go'.
