'Change! ' They Said By P.Lal - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

'Change! ' They Said by P.Lal is a collection
Of thirty to pages in total
Including about the book
And that too published from his firm,
Writers Workshop, Calcutta.

'Change! ' They Said, The Crickets,
Always the trouble was truth,
To what far land, Sparrow,
The Lecturer, Friend,
An Old Song, The moving Moon at Mussourie,
Beside the Pipal, Cranes, Images At Dawn,
A Leaf, The Atom Tests, The Passer-By,
The Mother's Song, T.S.Eliot,
Boat on the Hooghly,
The Refugees at Sealdah Station,
The Poet, A Poem on the Shraddha of a Lady Dying Nobly,
Jawaharlal Nehru and Promises,
The entries made into.

The book published in 1996
Is a simple collection of a simple poet
Doing the propaganda of a new movement
In Indian English poetry
Through self-publication,
vanity publication
Which I do not think it right
To do it.

Change, they said
An he tried to change,
But could not,
As the language was not own,
Not the spontaneity
Or natural flow,
But for the company
They kept with,
Gave name to the enterprise,
the poet's foundation
and through it, even the minors
Made a name into.

Lal writes decadent poetry,
Basing on images,
Begins nobly,
But fails to achieve at,
Scale the heights in poesy,
A poet of some middle order is he.
