Simple Man


He was no more an ordinary man
He lived full length life as human
Nothing could move him from his stand
We now realize its importance and understand

He was teacher by profession
But always came out with confession
Of having done wrong to anyone
He was thus liked by everyone

Village may have limited population
Each one is known by simple relation
By cast, religion or profession
It is good to feel here with relaxation

Life is normal and free from noise
Hardly any moment with simple choice
Doctor, banker and government official is respected
Everybody has got liking and never over reacted

His way of taking stock of situation
Proved in time to come as correct observation
He knew that the world was going to be different
Challenging and forcing everybody to live in present

Why I recall him is of some importance
He may force on us with his stance
Look so harsh but internally a kind man
Thorough down to earth and special person

I loved his personality and still remember
He had made each student as member
Of his inner circle and advised
And from time to time help was promised

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
