She..... - Poem by Neela Nath Das

She is selling shingles,
singly on the sea-shore!
Poverty-stricken, poor,
pauper and penniless.
Tittle-tattle turns
round like a ring
around anything
she simply earns.
Whirling of whim
turns timid a toy.
Pure-pearl plays no ploy.
This holiness horrors him.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'Him' here refers to the symbol of a person who by scandalizing wants to control an innocent soul.

    A nice SHE ! But why him at the end? Perhaps a typo error! (Report) Reply
