The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God


There's a one-eyed yellow idol to the north of Khatmandu,
There's a little marble cross below the town;
There's a broken-hearted woman tends the grave of Mad Carew,

    It is so to say is an entertainment piece many may have missed it at first sight! (Report) Reply

    It is always a pleasure reading the older classical poems. The moral of the story here is, be careful what you wish for, you may get it. (Report) Reply

    For a man of straitened means/Is allowed to have his dreams/And that emerald must be surely worth a bomb/So he pinched it just for him/And the girl was really dim/He was going to flog it off before too long. (Report) Reply

    My dad used to perform this as a party piece when I was about 6 years old. Like in 1932. He accompanied on the piano from some very tattered paper music. I would be very interested to know about the music. I kept it and played it for years until about 1958, but it got lost when I migrated to New Zealand. I would love to hear from anyone with further interest or knowledge. (Report) Reply

    I was born in England and this particular piece was a music hall classic.In my student days it was a favoutite at parties after we had more than enough to drink. I have not read it or heard it for years. I now live in the USA, strange what you miss isn't it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
