Tirupathi Chandrupatla


A Good Thing


Do not look
For a better one
Find one
That's good.

Good thing's
Always good
Better one
May not be.

Two items bad
Choose one better
Choice for sure
Not good anyway.

Whatever one
May have
There's always
One better.

Whatever thing
It may be
A better one
Can be invented.

Let the new
Item made
Be good in all
Possible ways.

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
