The Way Of Life - Poem by Shiv Kumar Joshi

Sunrise and Nature's all and wild craze for - the minds, The fire for wants, and dash for hopes, For flowers the mighty winds. Fear and fret for ailing heart And blow for empty vaunt, And lament for the lost one, for living the woes to haunt. The fights and wars and lands futile, and party strife in row, To think of foreign strand I fail, One land is sky below. Sunset, and the drowsy waves, And moaning of the sea, Then wink of one immortal sleep, And farewell world; to thee!
