A Home Library. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

A home library that I wished
Where great poet's and novelists works
Great philosopher's philosophies
The autobiographies of eminent men
There I will provide spaces to keep
Short stories of wonderful writers
Who carved out a place in literature
And wrote about the woes of humans
I want to read the great works of world
No doubt old man and sea will be there
The poor old man and his sorrows
That continues today in home towns
In villages, homes, little houses
Old men and who really understand them
The hardships, Physical challenges
The vision losses, neglect of relatives
I see the tears of poor old men
Thrown in wilderness of suffering
Throwing to old age homes without love
The new generation's neglect to them
All in my mind when I read such books
There I will trace out the old books
The world classics missing in shelf today
Going through digital sources and neglect
The good old classics a wealth really
The characters observed in society
I envision a library as my own
At least to see good books for happiness
The empathy, love, compassion that gives.
