    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.

Best Poem of Vikram Seth

All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above -

Know that you aren't alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

Read the full of All You Who Sleep Tonight


What can I say to you? How can I retract
All that that fool my voice has spoken -
Now that the facts are plain, the placid surface cracked,
The protocols of friendship broken?
I cannot walk by day as now I walk at dawn
Past the still house where you lie sleeping.
May the sun burn these footprints on the lawn
And hold you in its warmth and keeping.
