In A Friday Afternoon - Poem by SAKTHI RAVICHANDRAN

I was on roads on duty then
the time might be two or three afternoon
It was too hot to stand on roads, there
I recieved a message from my home.
I forgot every thing and road too and
my legs were in a hurry to rush
I forgot my duty and traffic too
My legs reached my home and lost my sense
to remove my shoes at the doorsteps
I found a crowd in my bed room
creating a jovial atmosphere
i had lost my patience and with a shout
I entered and had a vision of my little Angel
Which was near with a little rosy lips
In a sweet melting voice
I t declared it's arrival to me and to this world
Though she is now at eleven
I t is green in my memory and it will be for ever.
