Sudam Panigrahi

(26/01 / Jharsuguda)

Stop not you


Yonder seen a green hill,

As hues the sun was spreading.

Thought, you were waving,

As I came near and near,

You went away, still waving.



Like a mirage, I chased,

You disobeyed, like a brat.



Sun stop there for a minute,

The journey let me finish.

Enough walking, oh dear,

Stop there once for all.



A sweet trap, you’re not,

Darling, why don’t you stop?

Weariness, lassitude, touch

Still you smile so much.



The sun is on the other hill,

Continuing, a waste, I think.



*******

Oh, dear dearest seeker,

This is life, for success baiter.

Only walking, walking, not stopping.

A step is just a step near,

Walk ahead, catch me,

Walk along not flinch.



See, I’m right in front smiling.

Sashay along,

Stop a bit,

Grab my smile,

Let’s walk for a mile.

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:
