What Is A Home Like

Without a mother
Without a devoted wife?

Home without the mother
Home without the devoted wife
Is a chariot without wheels.

Without mother
Without devoted wife
Home is not home
It is a forest.

Devotional service provider
Is my mother
One who helps me in executing
Religious principles in devotional service
Is my wife
I know these are necessary
For a happy home.

My home is heaven
With my mother and good wife.
My home is pleasing to all.

    Dear Gajanan,
    You are hundred percent correct.

    Home without the mother
    Home without the devoted wife
    Is a chariot without wheels.

    Mother is the prime importance for everybody!
    There is no life without a good wife and vice versa!

    Recently I am submitting poems in this site, of one poet Vedhanayakam Pillai who worked as District munsif during 18th century, translated by me one by one, presently about how the wife and husband should lead their life happily. (Report) Reply

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,
