Sonnet: With Parents Gone…


As long as parents live, the family stays
With harmony 'midst members, weaved by love;
Once they are gone, much shaken turns the base,
As rivalry and fight for wealth starts now!

The father slogged as bread-winner for all;
The mother toiled at house-hold chores for long;
The children heeded to their beck and call,
And life on earth was like a happy song!

With parents old, the perfection got lost;
With parents sick, more confusion prevailed;
When parents died, peace had become a ghost!
Amity 'midst the children clearly failed!

With parents gone, home turns an empty shell,
And loosed on earth is pitch-darkness like hell.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
