Let Us Take Up Jayanta Mahapatra’s Waiting

A son of the soil, an Oriya by birth and rearing,
His mind can go nowhere
Barring Orissa,
The Orissan scenes, sights and landscapes,
Rivers, hills, sea beaches, forests,
Lakes, bird sanctuaries,
Historical sites and scenery.

The Morning I, The Morning II, Nightfall,
A Country Festival, Taste for Tomorrow,
The Earth of July, Bhubaneswar, Way of the River,
Song of the Past, The Faith, Thirst,
Thought of the Future, Orissa, Song of the River,
Konarka, Dhaulagiri, Waiting,
A Summer Night, The Temple Road, Puri, the poems.

Afternoons, Learning to Flow Free in the Chariot Festival at Puri,
At the Burning Ground, Dusk, Sun Worshipper Bathing,
Sanskrit, Shrines, At a Ritual Worship on a Sunday Afternoon,
Servility, Bazaar,5 P.M., Old Earth, The Indian Way,
Rain Sense, On What to Build Then,
The Beggar Takes it as Solace, Living,
Among the Trees, Fragments, in follow-up to them.

A Poem to Mahatma Gandhi, Story at the Start of 1978,
Sky, Strike Your Secret Earth, The Stranger,
Movements, Walking Home at Night,
The poems of their trend, type and tenor,
A poet of poverty and hunger,
Belief and disbelief, faith and doubt,
Human lust and greed, twitches of the selfish body,
Things in a flux
And indifferent time.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
