The Going Away - Poem by Diptesh Augustine Sarkar

The day is drifting to its end
the clouds from nowhere blackening the sky
evening is drooping lump by lump
a lull is climbing high.

A star woke up slowly
others followed soon
the wind took its usual course
the crickets began to croon

And a voice, which was so clear
began dispersing
into a mere
humming…

(Written 19th Sept,1998)
