Treasure Island

Narayanan Ramakrishnan

(25th May 1959 / Trivandrum)


The beauty of your face, still intact;
The curves and the mounds still attract,
The lips, so thin, urge another contact,
The eyes, emitting rays, for a fresh tract.

Eyes stunned by the beauty, can't say bye;
Heart throbbing for its share of pie,
Ears eager to hear your voice, a melody dye
Body expectant of an ecstatic high.

Why we parted, reason I still don't know,
If you are in the know, tell me now,
Twenty years apart, lived, we separated somehow,
Single still both of us, out shell come, late we are

    Beautiful and almost erotic expression of longing love....regained after a twenty year's absence, now again yearning and burning....I like the call to return to each other's is so sweet and hopeful. Your last stanza poignantly and aptly expresses everything. Passion has revived, and the lost love is indeed regained....longing to regain its lost footing....excellent! (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
