Light


Light the lamp a pleasure
Keeps away the darkness when lights
Light often represents knowledge
Darkness treated as ignorance.

Light the lamp a pleasure
Continuity of life event
The first opportunity or instance
The light from the lamp may be great.

From darkness to glory of light
Passed the generations
Their greatest triumphant victory
Often seems in finding the light
To light the lamp in their convenience.

Light the lamp in Indian context
Still gets so much relevance and importance
In occasions of almost all functions
They light up the oil lamp as a good event
Light here only an auspicious one.

    Beautiful poem from your pen. Beautiful lines.....Very true said, we light up the oil lamp as a good event, especially on any auspicious occasion.

    Light the lamp a pleasure
    Keeps away the darkness when lights
    Light often represents knowledge
    Darkness treated as ignorance.

    Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
