Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Meka had a toy camera


Meka had a toy camera,
presented by her Mummy Manjula
for her birthday;

While she was viewing through it,
She could see a few animals in it;

She showed it to me with enthusiasm,
I saw it with hilarious amusement;

While I see inside for the first time,
I asked her like a quiz whether she can guess;

I am seeing an animal with four letters,
Can you tell me what I see here?

She said, 'Is it a squirrel?
No, squirrel has eight letters,
tell me the animal you see real;

Is it tiger? but it has five letters,
Is it giraffe? but it has seven letters,
Tell me grandpa, what do you see?
I said, 'I can see a bear'!

Now she responded shrewdly,
If you click the camera several time,
You see a different animal every-time,
Squirrel, Tiger, Giraffe and Bear.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
