Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The manners to follow while elders get up and go!

When somebody gets up and goes,
…One should not call him loudly from behind,

Should not sneeze, should not ask him
…even by mistake where he is going,

He should not say anything face to face
…by going and standing in front of him,

But he shall speak by standing on both sides of him,
…And go past him on the right side of such elders!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
