Treasure Island

Aniruddha Pathak

O To Like What Is Not


The commons often crave the hoary,
Those in stars crave life ordinary,
The choice, one’s very own,
Has room no more for groan,
They dither that once chosen worry.
_______________________________________ ____
To answer what is posed in the last
line, one might say: contrary, contrary!
After becoming the country’s Prime
Minister, Dr Man Mohan Singh and his
family members seem to miss their freedom
and carefree life in the open. This is to
eat the apple and have it also, or being
unable to decide one way or the other.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
