Radio Memories


Vande Matharam invoking a day of spirit
Mother tunes her frequency to a devotional band
Saroj Narayanaswami somewhere radioed
I'm broadcasted by her voice to school alerted
Mayilvahanan with birthday wishes bids me bye

Mid-day melodies refine mom to a good cuisine
Fine-tuned are gloaming lessons by 'Vanoli' notation
Farmers converse with grand-pa on paddy-fields
Quite vivid an old Bharati recollecting elixir to slake heavenly

Ere retirement'brush with Binaca'commands Amin Sayani
Saigal sings 'soja Rajakumari' to mom sky-high
Lo, mom has slept all for good

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
