Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -
Round And Round
After a long and wretched flight
That stretched from daylight into night,
Where babies wept and tempers shattered
And the plane lurched and whiskey splattered
To make love with a stranger is the best.
There is no riddle and there is no test. --

To lie and love, not aching to make sense
The Frog And The Nightingale
Once upon a time a frog
Croaked away in Bingle Bog
Every night from dusk to dawn
He croaked awn and awn and awn
At Evening
Let me now sleep, let me not think, let me
Not ache with inconsistent tenderness.
It was untenable delight; we are free--
Separate, equal--and if loverless,

His poems are out of this world! His poems are mostly abstract in nature. He uses a lot of rhyming couplets; sadly I have not read any of his articles or books. My fault! ! ! On this very page is one of his best poems: All You Who Sleep Tonight. Merely, two verses, which brings out his in-depth thought processes! ! ! !

most diligent and versatile poet of the century. I not only admire his poems, i feel the love the poet inside as well. Wish I could just meet him once. But the desire to desire the desired is usually undesirable

I'm desperately waiting to see that Vikram Seth takes part in Poem Hunter at least to teach something about poetry writing to me. I'm truly stirred by his works.
