Treasure Island


(December.1955 / India)

Why do I write

The ocean possess a great treasure
But how you know, unless churned
Soil has the power to grow plants
But how you know, unless seed is sown

You know, water quenches the thirst
But unless you drink, how it can!
An artist needs to display his art
Else just a thought in his brain, it may remain

Poetry has the muse, music and message
And the poet possess the property of poetry
How shall it be benevolent and significant
Unless set out of his mental territory

As much the art is spread, it gives pleasure
Broadening the circle is artist's treasure
