How to exist?

 Once upon a time,

A Man met a Wild.

And said in pride,

We raise our kids

In relationships.

We treat them,

With hymns.

And sow dreams,

To become,

Either an Engineer or a Mountaineer.

Be it a Goldsmith,

Or a Blacksmith,

He links his life,

With this child.

The Wild heard,

and replied:

“It’s no new,

That you do.”

“What we train,

Is also the same.

We might not script.

Yes, we lick,

Kick, hiss, sniff,

But we teach them,

great craftsmanship.”

All in all,

we both,

Teach our kids,

  1. I am glad to see this.
    I went thru your blog and feel very impressed with the way you are conducting the content.

  2. That was a nice one! If you haven’t already, try and catch hold of “F T Palgrave’s The Golden Treasury of the best songs and lyrical poems”. It’s an old, anthology, but a beautiful one nonetheless.

    Thanks for getting me to think about poems – it’s been some time since I read any. First stop – Christina Rossetti.
