A Musical Entreaty - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

I blew air and the pipe piped
A tune full of joy and delight,
I blew the pipe for sometime on
The tune soon turned into a song.

Had I left the pipe alone
It would never have gifted me a song,
So let’s make good the opportunities of life
O my sweetie, come be my wife!

    Had you left the pipe alone you would not have made us all smile. You just made me think of the Pied Piper.
    Thank You

    the last line just was a swift turn to the whole of the poem...very beautiflly you have highlighted a message that whatever opportunity comes our way, we must make good use of it, rather repent at a later stage (Report) Reply

    For those who have eyes, gems are strewn on our way! We need pick them! If we can polish them with our effort, they will shine with sparkling brilliance! The metaphor of the flute with the melody from it is quite striking! (Report) Reply

    Though I am not a complete introvert Rajendran-ji, I do certainly admit to such tendencies. Thanks for reviewing the poem and for your wonderful comments. (Report) Reply

    WOW! What a message! And that call to the sweetie is the icing on the cake. How did you call yourself an introvert recently, Rajesh-ji? ! (Report) Reply
