Rajendra Keshavlal Shah

(28 January 1913 – 2 January 2010 / Kapadvanaj, Gujarat / India)

Last Day

In the house which was full of din, in the dusty courtyard
I kept the small baggage of the last age
And then the misty sad sun's
First ray shone in the sky; and that direction awoke in tremor.

The neighboring big ones living asked my welfare,
The housewives looked at me and got talking,
Out of curiosity children encircled me,
The dog barked for a minute and then smelt my feet.
