Poor Street Child - Poem by nimal dunuhinga
Poor street child
[The trouble with children is that they are not returnable.]-Fyodor Dostoyevski quotes
You count the big cars
and keep the figures
in your innocent memory?
Do you know about the painting
Vincent Van Gogh's 'The potato eaters'
Have you ever heard Beethoven's
All 9 symphonies.
You never been to Tchaikovsky's
I know you dream skyscrapers
while sleeping on the pavement
and taste the left overs
in the garbage bin?
I am so sad seeing your games
with a Sudoku puzzle
that found in the trash
and you make the word collecting letters
Yes! Your smile is a sad song my son
and very few listen?
