Treasure Island

The Image


The images on mind may stay
That shall never go away
As those events were closely associated
Right from childhood till ate and fully related

I had shifted to city side
The ancestral home was divided
No one took care and it remained unused
Even children did not like to stay there and refused

Sometimes later I dropped in to visit
From outside it looked deserted site
I felt tremendous pain and grieved
I felt bad and eyes could not be believed

It was in total shamble
Some years ago it was considered to be temple
A place to live in with pride
I saw it in horrible condition after it was divided

I opened the door to see the horrible condition
It reminded me of close relation
So much warmth of childhood days
Where I had honor to stay

Parents were too good to afford
Yet they did all they could do to provide good food
I was given best education
They wanted to see me in good position

Even though it was in dilapidated condition
I felt their kindness with each inhalation
I breathed with close feeling and happiness
I could think of home with satisfaction on face

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
