Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer

Who is the mightiest?

A fable told in a noble way
to show the world
the power of the Sun

An argument arose
between Sun and Wind
among-st the two who is the mightiest?

Approached was a saint
to act as the judge
in testing their power without any bias

chosen was a man
walking in a desert
to undergo the test

Sun and Wind both were asked
to make the man
to remove his turban

Opting first Wind started
the test, went on
to increase velocity in stages

the more the wind blew
the firmer was the grip
of the man on his turban

fearing of being lifted away
he rolled on the ground
still holding the turban

Wind opted back
and entered the Sun
to prove his mettle

focusing his rays
and increasing the intensity
shined the Sun with all his might

unable to withstand
the scorching heat
swooned the man fully exhausted

Perspiring heavily
the man took off
not only the turban but all his clothes

conceding the defeat
Wind went weeping
and Sun stood the mightiest!

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
