Long Way To Go

Thoughts unclear, hazy and clumsy;
Confused to think and reflect easy,
And put words in right and just way
Though I have to go a long way,

From life to death and friends to family;
From heart to hurt and sad to joy,
From love to hate and hope to tears,
From God to good and me to many,
As poems go the way I feel and write sanely,

Themes vary and all such comprise poetry;
Poems like other things don’t come easy,
Neither planted in gardens nor found in groceries,
Rather poems give birth to gardens and groceries,
Many a thing of beauty born from poems,
Supposed to be the maker of their destiny,

Nature’s untutored child comes;
When heart cries, bleeds, wails,
And bloom of life goes withering,
And soul goes astray, goes beyond,
Penetrate soul, pierce body and mind,

Dragging my heart to pounding;
And the thumping goes unheard, unseen,
Oh, fairy and holy child of Nature,
Feel and see my mental agony,
Waken the slumbering splendour of the mind,
Sprout forth beauties of poems spontaneously,
For I have to go a long long way before I sleep......

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
