Neela Nath


Nature, I want to lie
on the soft wavy grass.
Under a shady tree, listening
to the song of the Thrush.
I'm tired of this weary way,
of the vices, the decaying,
time wearing me every day!
I can't get why we hurt
other with scorching words,
fight with race, religion!
The lambs have to go homeward.
Two days ago or after,
we will breathe our last.
Why, do we feel hatred,
and turn wrong, unjust?
Nature, my best teacher,
spread your hand and
take me in your serene,
gentle, soothing land.
Forgetting all the pains,
the strife and sorrow,
I'll, take rest on your lap,
your calmness, let me borrow!

    Nature with its green vegetation and all other myriad forms is so soothing...! That's why sages and bards always withdraw into its serenity for solace and inspiration! An enjoyable read! (Report) Reply

    'Two days ago or after,
    we will breathe our last'
    and your use of symbol lamb is wonderful. Materialism and I have overpowered the humans. The elements which were in abundance and had immense power for natural replenishment have been ruthlessly exploited. Numerous signals are being received which are being continually ignored...............still we have time to inculcate symboitic nature of Nature. The write reflects the virginity of nature in true form.10+ (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
