To Swim - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
I swam across the river
The waves tried to challenge
The wind inspired me to swim
There the fish of variety
Came behind me to help
Their fins moved to train me
The mouthful of water they spit
As if to teach me the lessons
The nostrils they shivered in water
As if to give suitable instruction
The crabs looked from distance
As a danger signal showed its hands
There came the imminent danger
The wild dogs living in water
With vigor tried to disturb me
As if I am the prey in their waiting
But they knew I am a man, and a human
Ever tries to challenge the mighty
My muscle raised in protest
While activated one hand for swimming
I spat the water against them
And made ho! Ho! sounds in fearsome
Anyhow I reached the shores
The waiting friends were happy
And offered a drink of coffee.
