Treasure Island

Vadakkumpurath Ramesan


I lost the fragrance
Of the childhood
The adolescence
And the colorful youth hood
But I could smell
The gone fragrance
As the Lilly flowers
Blossom in my heart
Where I am reduced to a babe
I could smell
The inquisitiveness
Of my adolescence
When I waked the lake
Filled with red-lotus flock
When I plucked it
From its umblical reed
That embedded on the marshy bed
Of the serene and cold lake.
I could smell
The fragrance of the dreams
Of my youthfullness
Where my eyes locked
With her dark deep eyes
Where I melt
In her sweet smile!
But I abandoned
All fragrance of life
When the twilight dusk
With its Grey eyes
Searched for the Vermilion dot
On the parting ways
Of the thick hair of the sky
And stood with sharp ears
To hear the giggling bangles
That went into oblivion!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
