(7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

MAHABALIPURAM


Small town with a great past,
Ruled by many kings,
ships of olden age,
Left it's shore
In search of other cultures,
Life seems to be at standstill,
When we see the rock edifices,
The grand temple on sjore,
Telling the past glory,
Lost over a period,
Seeing many kngdoms
Come and go,
Glorifying it more and more,
But now a vistors' spot,
The granduer in tact,
Tried out by the awesome sculptors
Who toiled in heat,
To erect and chisel
The pieces of art,
Time couldn't destroy.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
