Once a Joker came to my home

Once a Joker came to my home
With him I went to Moon on a full moon night
The Joker cracked as usual a joke
And then one by one..
The volcanoes cried in laughter
The asteroids hanging around with cosmic guffs
The stars closer, like a shower of light spots
Invited us to their lands and worlds
Everything was nice and happy
Then a lady came
She was strikingly beautiful
Clad in a blue and white sari
With a pearl of tears in her eyes
She told the Joker ' My people need you '
We came back on her wings
The Joker became a poet
Me a Joker

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
