Treasure Island


(4-11-00 / INDIA)

On My Behalf

I slipped in to life
From the world unknown
I slipped in to life
Like a bird
That has taken a wrong route

Having the wings
Of age and experience
I will fly
As I should fly

I will slip into death
To meet the world unknown
I will slip in to death
Like a bird
That has taken a right path

Losing the wings
Of age and experience
I will go
As I should go

As I will be seen
A bird that was flying
I shall be known
A bird that was missing

Between flying
And missing

What was the gain?
And on my behalf
What will remain?
O my spirit,
What is your quality?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
