[02] Within Dream - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Opening door I'll go to mango-garden
And pick-up babyhood
When the morn yarns and brushes teeth
On the stem of neem tree.

Eating green mango I'll fly with kite
When summer-noon baths into river.

Taking leave-card from class-monitor
I'll enter into childhood
And never fall back again.

    Brings up vibrant images of childhood days! I had heard many stories from my
    father about the mango, jackfruit and guava gardens of Bangladesh; he use to miss them all - in the congested city of Calcutta! 10++
