    A great poet with a distinct style of his own. Will always be remembered for the poem The River.

A River

In Madurai,
city of temples and poets,
who sang of cities and temples,
every summer
a river dries to a trickle
in the sand,
baring the sand ribs,
straw and women's hair
clogging the watergates

[Hata Bildir]
