Compromise - Poem by Dillip K Swain

I am arrested
by a heavy evening rain
Thinking of you
And only you

I see you from the distance
Recollecting your beaming face
Like the new rising sun
Never had it through ages

We fought for a decade
Over a trade of little wealth
As I could do nothing
Except writing for good health

Your late approval for
My madness and my passion
Revived my fading love
In an energetic fashion

I am double dozed to go on
Being arrested by the nonstop rain
And the mild breeze
Keeps on fine tuning my brain

Oh my dear!
The ecstasy of this morning
Is singing a prolonged song
Pleasing my ear drums all along
