Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Visalakshi iv


Visalakshi is under dialysis.
I heard and enquired over phone.
She displayed no attachment.

Her son family met a car accident.
I heard and condoled over phone.
She displayed no attachment.

After her husband’s death in a car accident,
When I condoled to her over phone
She displayed disinterest.

It is written on the wall
That she is not inclined to resurrect
Our love aborted fifty five years ago.

Her virtue is commendable.
My lingering love is rejected.
I am proud I’d loved such a woman.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
