A Dream I Have To Write Poem by Naseer Ahmed Nasir

A Dream I Have To Write

Rating: 4.8

A dream
I have to write
On the wooden slate
Of a child
Playing traunt from the school.

A moon
I have to write
On the forehead
Of a woman
Swarthier than evetide darkness.

A song
I have to write
On the frozen lips
of the wind
Passing through
A bamboo forest.

A name
I have to write
On an unmarked
Grave stone
In a memorial cemetry.

(Translated from Urdu to English by Dr. Satyapal Anand and from English to Spanish by Dr. Teresinka Pereira)

A dream, a moon, a song, a name...things worthy to be written - wonderful poem... I was thinking, how good that you have written it - now, probably months after it came to the world, I can read it! So, do keep writing...dream, moon, song, name...

nothing escapes your compassionate eyes. the first A dream I have to write on the wooden slate of a child playing truant from school made me smile, but as i read on i was touched by the images; such is the effect of your poetry, it lingers on long after one has logged off. Naseer. Regards Mamta
