Rekha Mandagere Poems
Freshness of love made me lively
To give up the life of solitude boldly
Year after year we loved happily
Hand in hand ever walked closely
Shockingly arose a whirlpool of strangers
Who wished to measure the worth of lovers.
I spiritedly climbed the hill in a second
And swam with the tides to far beyond
They uttered in chorus Great! Great!
But the final test to win was already set
Plucking away my root was only their trial
Implanting New Belief was their word final
Hearing that terrific crime I was taken aback
Inner voice cautioned me never ...
The Crown Of Creation
THE CROWN OF CREATION
What a piece of art man is!
The peak of intelligence
So fair in mind and virtuous
Symbol of strength and valour
Proud being who can think
Your capacities are unique
And you're the refined form
From intellect to emotion
