All Are Knights And Princesses - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A lass will fantasize about the knight
In the shining armour,
Who will come on a galloping horse
And sweep her off her feet
And walk with her into the sunset.

A lad will fantasize about the princess
In the velvet garment,
Who will wait for him in the parlour
And find him way to reach her
And walk with him into the dark spot.

Such like things may not happen in life
Yet don’t discourage them.
Thinking that it might or might not last,
No one will fantasize,
And the pleasure is neither denied.
