Madhabi Banerjee Poems
Hide And Seek
It was funny in my childhood to be missing.
Hardly anyone is there who is never lost
Hardly anyone is there who has never l come back.
Likewise playing such hide and seek game
We are grown.
Last year the school building was drifting away in the flood water
Crops over flown and destroyed because of whirlpool.
And the blood was shed abundantly in the huts
Recently a few girls were secretly sent to the occident
And suddenly a violent outbreak of cholera depopulated the villages.
Seeing the green leaf on the alluvium land
We are recognized ...
Once I met a man.
He was gentle,
He was modest
He was expert, he was honest
An elegant figure
I asked him'art thou the famous mr....'
He gazed at me but answered me not
Again I questioned'art thou the widely renowned mr...'
He remained unmoved yet.
