My College Days


Those were the best days of my life,
When fun and frolic was rife.
A refreshing realm of knowledge,
That was my college.

Funny friends and loving lecturers,
Freaky fundas and flexible study hours.
Riddles and rumors, gossips and giggles-umpteen,
Added spice to the junk I hogged at the college canteen.

I majored in English Literature,
And the subject suited my sensitive nature.
I was initiated into the world of stories, poems and plays,
Each lecture set my imagination ablaze.

My college was a literary paradise,
Where I learnt to critically analyze,
Every text that came my way,
Be it poetry, prose or play.

Free from the fetters of school,
I willingly jumped into the knowledge pool.
Where education was mixed with entertainment,
At college learning was never a punishment.

    Ohhhb this is great...

    you know ma'am, if some one want to have a fun kind of education, one need to study literature..
    I study literature in university here in S.L too.. yet with that, I have to study econ too, now that is tough.. I mean too complicated..
    Literature is fun..... this semester, we studied Twelfth Night.. now that is great fun..
    and also Wutherin Heights......
    Great......

    In fact if you do literature, you don't feel like studying, it is pure entertainment,
    Just that econ, I hate so much, filled with graphs and formulas..

    this is good one, filled with life.. laughter and joy..

    Extremely contemporary in it's premise.
    Sounds very much like a new age stuff,
    breaking away from the orthodox.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
