On Her Way To School - Poem by Sanjukta Nag
She followed the striped cat
Stepping slowly - one two three,
Then became bore to count more,
And left her school bag hanging
On the branch of a tree.
Her favourite tiffin box - blue
Without showing any clue
Dropped in the middle of street,
To give the illiterate hungry dogs
A sudden delicious treat.
She followed the striped cat,
Forgetting her school and rule
Of knotty arithmetic,
It was only her curious eyes
And brown legs of the cat
Were leading her - automatic.
They crossed a lofty wall
To land on the greenish ground
Where the little girl found,
Four kittens of big blue eyes,
Lying in a cane basket
With furs of chocolate pies.
Though she had lost her way,
Her eyes were still gleaming
Like a bright sunny day.
‘Cause she realized already,
This joy is more genuine
Than her lots of dolls & teddy.
