Treasure Island

DEEPAK KUMAR PATTANAYAK


The silent sufferer


The silent sufferer
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Imminent was the end of summer
At the onset of autumn
Panicking trees to shed their treasures
For what they should have done
When they are startled things
At the slightest turn of season
They shiver and gulp down woes
Setting aside inquest for sensible reason
And all such sufferings
So silent so humble
Never do they ask to calm the season
Never do they ask to lessen the pain
And on their pins and needles
Autumn makes roll in the aisles
Down the walk on a pensive track
I saw leaves lying dead on brown bed
And the sky losing its blue shade
And my heart was troubled
Seeing the Nature gloomy and sad
I was expecting pleasant things along
So I glanced up and up in the sky
Forgetting the leaf-strewn bed
Wishing autumn for a moment be dead
And wishing myself a handful of roses
Surprisingly God I thanked
Seeing them hanging overhead…….

    Beautiful description of the transition of Summer to Autumn and the discernible changes taking place in Nature. From the grave of dead leaves when you looked up, you could see the rosy and crimson sky! So the gloom is compensated with cheer! Enjoyed much and a10 (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
