The Ancient Game - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
Come! Play with me once again
That very game we both played when we were very young,
The game that was guided by our unfailing innocence
When we knew not what was good or bad
And we merely found cover by hiding in the so-called fearsome wilderness
And then sought out each other’s fond and comforting company;
Come! Play with me the same game of hide and seek.
But although, when we have now grown very old
And there is not our innocence to guide us anymore;
Having learnt to identify, differentiate and evaluate all things,
We still hesitate, doubt or suspect our sight and finds.
Even so my dearest friend,
I want you to come and play with me again
The same old game of hide and seek that we often played;
We shall once again try to find the same old cover to hide ourselves,
And then seek each other’s presence as eagerly
Now with the aid of our re-invented lost innocence to guide.
