A Shirt From The Wardrobe - Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi

Play Poem Video

Not worn for many years,
Suddenly grown over sized,
The sleeves are hung from,
The shoulders, the junction,
At the arm pits look as the sacks,
A tailor made perfect piece,
Outsized to be a farce,
A shirt, which is kept as a souvenir,
Once fitted and radiated the curves,
Not really collapsed, but gets bigger.

    Suddenly grown over sized
    I am sure it is a good sign to keep in shape. Problem is usually the other way and that is what I face. Beautiful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    That one piece that displays many memorable memories over the years. Some of those memories are just between you two. I am interested if you have lots of different photos of you in this piece. Thank you (Report) Reply
