The Poetry Of The Earth Is Never Dead - Poem by Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

True that the poetry of the earth is never dead

The grasshopper and the cricket testify that

But another great war will take place

It will a nuclear one I am sure

That will be the end of grasshopper and cricket

That will be the end of the poetry of earth

Presently with another great war

our dear earth will turn into a piece of charcoal in a moment

to dissolve in the space

Thank you Herr Einstein

Thank you Oppenheimer

Thank you Gamow

Thanks to the disinterested curiosity of science

To me the meanest flower that blows

tells me what man has made of the earth

    A poet is the onlooker who look at something extra!
