I Am To Go - Poem by Neela Nath Das

I didn't bury my past days for my present delight
I love the soil, the garden, the trees and plants
Bearing my ancestors' touch and smell.
Humans may not know, how much I love them!
But, the chirping birds nestward know how I miss my nest.
I am to go, I am to go, to the deep-root of that soil,
Where I was born and reared with the nature's magic spell.
The sky, the river and the leas taught me there
How to stand and to move, so I am now here.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is my tribute to my birthplace.This is not a tip-top poem, rather untidy, just an outburst of sudden emotion.

    I appreciate the honesty and the humility with witch you have portrayed the place of your birth.
    Where I was born and reared with the nature's magic spell.
    The sky, the river and the leas taught me there
    How to stand and to move, so I am now here.
