Treasure Island

indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

Of rains and ruins


She sat on the window sill

Till the light was stolen

The dark sky looming above

Knew no respite

From morn to eve

She wept and wept

Tears flooding the earth

No trace of father

Did the little girl discern

There she slept all by herself

Mother’s cajoling words

To no avail...


The rain today stole

A naughty child’s soul

Wile the Yamuna swerved

From her comely course

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
