For Little Vyomi Poem by Bharati Nayak

For Little Vyomi

Rating: 4.4


Your innocent eyes
Soft rosy lips
Your pink skin
Even your baby- cries
Make me forget
That I am an alien
In this foreign land
Though beautiful
Somewhere there is
Hollowness
Which I try to fill
When I lift you
Into my arms
Hi Vyomi
I feel only
A bundle of happiness
Just so beautiful!

WELCOME to the USA! But I suggest using 'when I lift you INTO my ARMS' Hi, Vyomi. ;)

I would prefer, "When you lift IN my arms." I think this is the correct usage in British English, though I am not an authority in it. Bri could be asking you to follow American English.

Nice, Bharati. Yes, a baby CAN bring happiness, especially to a new parent/grandparent. But just wait and see how you feel after 485 diaper changes in 90 days, especially if YOU have to wash the diapers! 4 stars. bri ;)

'Make me forget That I am an alien In this foreign land'......I believe Bharati is writing about lifting an infant relative while she visits her son in California in the USA. Bharati would be an 'alien' here. ;) bri

Dear poetess, you have clearly expressed the genuine and immaculate feeling of a grandparent. The usage of hollowness is a golden feather.
