Little Boat - Poem by Kanishka SricharanPratap

You float in rivers... in canals...
In ponds... in creeks...
Float... you float... only for today!

If you sink
Neither sorrow nor pain,
O' my little boat!

Behind the seven seas
Where is Java, Sumatra, Bornio
And other lands
At such far distance!

Your paper-cork body
Can lift the trading goods?
If can,
Where from?

For that
I search... we search
A little job that may be!
We wait.

O' my little boat!
On this full moon day
No, never be sad,
Float... you float... only for today!
