Treasure Island

Yamini Iyer

My Quest

Awestruck, I stood amidst them
They grinned and swayed at thy tunes
Exuberant were they to witness thy mien
Hath I not blest that fortune?

Far I stand and thee so dimly seen
Hath not my dole been, to me, so mean?
Far hast thee reached, lot tasted fame
Past’s now archaic, thee rein thy name and aim
Times expound days we were but compeer
Hath spent hours so bosom, so firmly dear
Ecstasy! my eyes face to attend thy opulence
Familiar I am to thy destiny and its provenance
Certainly in thy sanity I amble somewhere
Though iffy ‘bout thou art unchanged to unchangeably care
Thee narrated thy fond heart to me that hour
The hour that avouches thy love for me
Certain though I, yet ignorant, does that hour still breathes in thee?
I am the one who promised thy arms life long
I fancy if could life echo that mellifluous song
I fathom, afar is thy abode whereat thy brilliance shine
All my quest is “forever, shalt thou be mine? ”

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
