R.K Das

(22, january / INDIA)


Oh Princess
My princess of the ocean
The darling girl of the pirate King
Am one in a billion to dare
Take a lonely voyage on a hostile seven seas
As I sail and sail on unknown passage
On the turmoil of tempest
And on the trails of hungry sharks.
To give you an Indian red rose.

Oh Princess
My princes of the ocean
The darling damsel of this lonely Indian
who hides you in his cosy heart
as he embarks on a fearsome journey
on the surfy waters of an inhospitable ocean
to recite for you a poem of love and romance.

Oh Princess
My Princess of the ocean
Be my love and life and
Test not my love and loyalty,
As I color your secret dreams
With the colors that I have stolen from
The rainbow of an Indian sky
All for you......all for you?

    Sheer symbolism and I agree with Shahzia, words would fail to render the subtlety and delicacy of thoughts. (Report) Reply

    Words are so hard and so mundane and so concrete that they should not be used to describe or interpret such a delicate piece of poetic imagination! ! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
