The price of fame
Was lost back then
And then regained
When artiste died
True. Human nature. We tend to honour people, posthumously.5*
This needs to change. Poem Hunter is accelerating that change. Poet Menon, THX so much for the top score.
Brilliant and impeccable......thank u, dear friend....
Such high praise from one of my favourite poets is indeed an honour. THX so much, Anjandev.
so death of an artist is the incarnation of the fame!
Not always! But definitely...sometimes. Sometimes too often!
irony of life well depicted...
Greatly appreciated, Pallab!

So true, so true and how sad it is when those so meritorious are not while alive recognized for their genius and personal talent. Your poem expresses this so very well! Great piece!
That's the beauty of a platform like Poem Hunter. It's home to the recognition of talent from the past and present. Susan, THX so much for your observations and very positive response to my poem.
