gajanan mishra

Who is fond of death


Who is fond of death, my dear
Who is fond of death, tell me
I am eager to hear from you here.

Is death pleasing tell me and
Tell me how you are living here
Without facing the death, my dear.

Life is not common, my dear
But death is common and if you are
To lament then lament for life only.

Knowledge of death is necessary, my dear
Knowledge of life is not so required
Know the death first before living.

You are to experienced both here
Life and death and in both you could find
Celestial enjoyment, my dear without jealousy or envy.

Innumerable obstacles are there both
In life and death, my dear, equally in death and
In life you could find limitations and disturbances .

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
