Bronze Star - 2,107 Points (29-06-1976 / Guskara-Burdwan)

A Casino.... - Poem by PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

A casino enjoys
all the furtive glances
and the flirtatious smiles
of so many aces...

A casino looks on
deflated hopes and blooming dreams;
listens in the loud hisses of an invisible reconteur
and the mirrors there frown at the fleeting shadows.

A casino laughs at all the stupid wits
that play cards with very tall claims;
they are so blind to such clever games!
The card with the victory sign knows well the right hands.
