Silken Weaves for Satyanarain MVS

In Miltonic gait he walks,
like Alexander Pope
in couplets talks,
in free verse
he is well versed,
all poetic forms
well traversed.

In rhyme and rhythm
he always rocks,
of them he has
a good stock,
like heroic
Rape of the Lock.

His meter has a
variant mix,
with great care
it he picks,
sweet and somber
music clicks.

Rich imagery
he culls out,
from Nature, society,
court room bout,
a beauteous tapestry
spreads out.

Kaleidoscopic themes
he weaves,
misery, sorrows, terror
he grieves,
harmony and joy

He can shed
the crimson tears,
on his sleeve
his heart he bears,
others grief and gloom
him tears.

He is Prem Chand’s
‘Salt Inspector’,
Social irresponsibility
Sensitive sensor of
justice sector.

In all philosophies
well read,
he cares for the poor
man’s bread,
his themes are very
widely spread.

To him the meanest
ant can churn,
lessons for the life
to learn,
incongruities in life
he spurns.

Read his poetry
I recommend,
Life in him is
finely blend,
as a poet
he outstands.
