~ Let O You Not ~ [christmas Submission By ~ Wee Niv] - Poem by MS. NIVEDITA BAGCHI SPC. UK.

Ms. Nivedita
24 December,2009.

Orphans, distressed
Heard Thine name
Return with
Have nothing
Let O You not.
In despair
Weep those
Wipe eyes
Let O You.

Whose bosom is
In trepidation
Assure them let
O You.

Needy, fortuneless
Destitute in hundreds
There are,
Bosoms worn out
By woes
Weeping ceaselessly
Doomed by sins
Go to whom
Where the path is?
Appear before
Their vision
O You.

    Christmas is a time of giving though the date of christ birth is actually hidden in bible and the day is faded in the illusion of the gifts of three wise men... but then there was only one christian and he died on the cross... so what is christmas it is now a retail driven money spinner, with no spirit or soul! Why turn your back on the troubles of the world to give to your own? ? ? Simple actually charity begins at home. The needy, poverty stricken people who never know this time of year like most do... just need a kind heart... home is where the heart is... are you will to give it so generously to them? ? ? A heart felt poem that gives out a message all should hear and adhere too... but do not! (Report) Reply

    Needy, fortuneless
    Destitute in hundreds
    There are,
    Bosoms worn out
    By woes
    Weeping ceaselessly
    Doomed by sins
    Go to whom
    Where the path is?
    -beautiful touching lines
    Santa clauses are there
    On Christmas days
    Is there any Santa Clause
    To offer help and gifts
    to these homeless pathless
    life denied waylaid Destitute
    In hundreds and thousands?
    -good poem Nivetita and thanks for bringing Tagore in your stylish lines

    This is very much topical when you read 3 food banks are set up every week in the UK. I simple focus on the plight with little use of metaphor to directly make the reader feel the lost. Great piece. (Report) Reply

    At Christmas we need to help the poor and forgotten people of the world who live in despair with the terrible pain of hunger. With God's love we can help God's own people to give them hope as their new horizon!
    Inspired write!

    I have not read all your works, but this I think is the best of all. Its emotionally moving, it has a place in our society, its calls out our morals as humans, the characters are very real and believable. its got every element yo want in poetry. Well done 10/10 (Report) Reply

    Some of us still cry for the poor when we cry for those we love also. Do we not also remember them. Especially at Christmas.
    'Orphans, distressed
    Heard Thine name'
    This is the reason we remember them we write for them and ourselves especially at Xmas. I wrote the lines below in 'State Of 20th Century Man' for the poor and distressed many years ago, they are often in my thoughts. Does not remembering make us a better person when we remember our blessings and the plight of those less fortunate?

    Celebrations abound, a warm Christmas day,
    but for the poverty-stricken poor, another hungry day.
    The Christmas Spirit, barely remembered now
    a gluttonous feast, chicken, wine.
    Who cares for the precepts of another time?

    Again a wonderful write Nivedita 10

    It will help nurse a lot of wounded souls.
    With this one you break away from your
    contemporary style. A good one.
