****~in Sunderbans~**** - Poem by Amit Ray

Your Name: Amit Ray

Title of Poem: In Sunderbans

The Body of the Poem:

In Sunderbans where tigers roar
Mangroves dense vast surroundings explore
Black stripes sniffed on orange flesh
for succour where to- ever his grouses justified refesh
Danger lurks cautiously guarding his lair, mother Nature in furore!

A timid deer`s gossamer dreams in his patient mouth
That`s how the law defined-somebody`s sunrise and somebody else`s sunset so couth
A second day fuel with a succulent buffalo, a third day duel with a crocodile in nesh
In Sunderbans

There lies in silence a bigger score
A honey farmer in the death row he tore
He picked up a quarrel with the busy bees in their mesh
A new day musing with new enemies afresh
And now a village trail along the Matla river, a new taste flick with albacore
In Sunderbans

N.B. Poetry form is English Rondeau.
