Treasure Island

Aniruddha Pathak

(25.05.1941 / Godhra - Gujarat)

A merry heart is much-honed art


The whole of me when felt a rare buoy
From within, which when felt out was joy,
And a source was of my smile,
Which I saved safe in my mind’s file
To bring it forth when the spring of joy dried
For reasons that all logic defied,
But when I recopied the smile
From my mind’s reserved file,
The smile the source was of the river of my joy.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
