Robert Murray Smith Poem by Rajnish Manga

Robert Murray Smith

Rating: 5.0


When we log into PH we look out for friends
Especially those who have carved new trends

Robert Murray Smith has been a trend-setter
Impressive was his writing unique every letter

No idea when he opened the door and left
We were taken aback as it was like a theft

He is conspicuous by his absence you know
Hard hitting- It has come to us as real blow

Mercury dipped, such was his disappearance
Depression followed and created a turbulence

His poems were insightful and psychological
Shaped by experience not the least mythical


Rejoice as we must- we have gotten a reason
Our Friend came back to brighten the season

Flying poetic pigeons can never be a myth
Enacting the act is none other than Mr Smith

Thank you very much, Geeta ji, for being so generous in appreciating this small and humble work. I am rather honoured. It is, in fact, the presence of mutual respect and understanding among poet friends that keeps us going together. High ratings from you do inspire me a great deal.

After a short stint of absence, Robert Murray Smith has come back to rock the stage, this time pledged on cleaning up the rotten mess and giving a face lift to our site! A great bouquet of appreciation for a fellow poet!

A great poem ! It also pained me when I found that Robert Murray Smith's account vanished and also his so many comments on my poems.He is a great poetic voice on this Site and inspiration to so many.It is equally a great pleasure to see him back here.My request to Robert Murray Smith and also to other poets, never go away with out stating a reason because you may not possibly know how your friends will feel hurt and how they miss you.

Daddy was never gone at all. He was merely using of of his multiple aliases.
