Treasure Island

vinodkumar kizhakeveetil


The Train


Connecting cross-section of people,
Connecting places,
Melancholic farewells, rapturous unions
With deep sigh it brings.

Pastures, rivers, seas call,
Hillsides, peaks, and skies call,
Farewell to thee
Nay, songs of thine farewell ringing-
in my heart,
Farewell, farewell, farewell;


Distance covered in no time,
Space lost in no time,
It propelled civilization,
The ship that crawled on land.

    Dear poet Vinodkumar Kizhakeveetil, you write beautifully with nice picturs and metaphors. I think, you could say something more. I give 9+. Keep on. Go ahead

    This is a statement about the role of the train. It played a significant one indeed.
    I recommend it because it yields information in a delightful way.

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,
