Outside - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

My grand daughter is single child
nine plus age, class five
Plays alone at home for hours
She is sharp and brilliant
Studies less, plays more
But scores 'A' in examination
It's her nature
I encourage her to play
To enjoy her sweet childhood
in well manner
She plays in PC, laptop, tab, smart phone
when she don't have partner
And opt for ludo, chess, cards
Chinese checker and other games
If family members join her
She goes to adjacent park for an hour
In the afternoon
For playing with friends
maximum time she spends inside
It's her world.
I see her and be surprised
when I was in her age
the meaning of 'play' was 'outside'.
