Ratneswar Brahmachari

(Calcutta (India))

Ode To A Friend


Beloved to many thou might be;
Restrained by resolutions
Stiffend by ideals
Ornated by augmented austerity;

That's thou, as they see.


Thou stood by the window,
Thy serene tranquil pacified glance
Reminded an octagenerion mother,

About Messiah!

That's thou, as they bow.


Oh! my friend
To me;

Thou art no great,
Lest thy greatness has its boundary!
To me thou art no good,
Lest thy goodness be too mean to fit thou.

To me thou art no altruist,
Lest thou altruism's alignment
Alters at altars.

To me thou art no messiah,
Lest thou be crucified!

Thou art oh! revered heart;

Thou art thyself.
An eternal embodiment od Alchemist's elixir
Secured in nature's boon
Of silent shamanism.

Thou art Oh! revered heart.

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
