Young Man's Pursuit


It is a young man’s pursuit
As it is named after and well suited
Man of long desire with open interest
He serves his capacity to the best

His eyes turn around
For something to be found
May be for good companion
And seeking union

Well, he drives with intention
But no where exist such smooth relation
He has no special thing in mind
Only beautiful eyes of eyes of any kind

He fails in each attempt
Yet he is prepared for it and very much prompt
This drive keeps him in race
The red cheeks are shining on face

It is drive for dreamland
Till somebody is found as friend
“A friend in need and not as greed”
But now it is really desire and need

Well, such drive may continue for some more time
Till it succeeds and meets with an opportune time
His elegant behavior may make special drive
For another bid to excel and survive

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
