A Pair of Mallards
Lurking sun behind high trees,
Winking slit at frequent breeze,
Beside was ocean spread long,
Motion hides curious pride prolong.
Intrepid waves too rush bright,
O'er open moisture shell delight.
As sailor goes somewhere light,
My enthusiastic step dashed slight.
Little congestion were prizing there.
Children's cry with bodies bare.
Abrupt, I feel soft voice puffing,
At distance bicycle two girls coming.
What they bore transparent base.
Deem secure from hot dog-days!
Their fleshy hold when seemed glee,
Ready out squirmed complete free.
Movement one crack to another,
Wrestle sure no bound further.
Disperse time cheer pleasure thermically,
We drift precise melodious absolutely,
Make jest discover His kind wish,
Avert call ancestor's wistful kiss.
Soon trait the poser acute nip,
Alarm each on demand by mysterious sip.
Along whirling current find both,
Clasping a pair of mallards growth.
Place before dense shrub appear.
Glorify beauty lead Kollam fair.
They stumble seen disturbed but,
These prospective eyes supported yet.
If virtue exists in thy soul:
Hands touches blind gloomy goal.
Man's error might be exempted,
Delay punish hooligan, cruelty awarded.
Hence provide defense to deserving ability,
Taste joy, greet, reach gate wide extremity.
