Treasure Island

Indira Renganathan


Thank You Mr.Robert Frost


Thank you Mr.Robert Frost
For 'The road not taken'
That showed me the route..
But a road many travelled taken

Sounding vehicles of noisy, dusty smokiness
A space of all trees felled
And there the lurching, ditching pits
Venturous like your route of 'yellow wood'

True many times trodden on black
This body mine painful to carry
Through the agony of a road black
Still follow you sir, challenging as you say

Along a road of hurdles my life
Everyday waddles towards a temple resort
And I mind not my strife
Thank you Mr.Robert Frost
