satbir bakshi Biography

I am a 55 years old ship captain, poetry has been the bane of my life ever since I was a young lad - good poetry has been the anchor of my life too. I used to write prose and never published my poems for fear till while on poemhunter I was encouraged by the Hon'able Ms Nivedita Bagchi.

I live in NOIDA near Delhi and love country music, good poetry, cooking, dogs and garlic.

The Best Poem Of satbir bakshi

Dulce Et, Decorum Est, Pro Patria Mori

Dulce Et, Decorum Est, Pro Patria Mori
Its sweet and proper to die for one's country

Blood looks violet on fresh snow
Says my friend- Laljee
He should know - having left
Two vertebrae at Siachen.

If one could hear
The frothy blood come
Bursting in spurts from
Bullet ridden lungs

My friend you would not
Tell with such vigour and zest
To little boys
Ardent for some desparate glory
The Old Lie
Dulce Et, Decorum Est, Pro Patria Mori

The last stanza is dedicated to the actual poet Wilfred Owen
