'A Silent Night, a Holy Night'


The sun has set and the shadows fled
The feathered flocks, flown to their nest
Weary men after the day's toil and care
Are back home for sleep and rest

No bird sings and no beast strays
No tramp wanders and no lights shimmer
Silence rules and peace prevails
The sky is clear and the stars do glimmer

Buds unfold in shady glades
A sweet aroma pervades the air
Fluttering leaves sing a lullaby
And glow worms reel on wings of fire

Birds and beasts, in Nature's bosom rest
Babies nap, cuddling to their mothers tight
Tired men stretch out under quilts for ease
The world, asleep with dreams sweet and bright

A brief interlude from all angry strife
A time of farewell to all frivolous conceits
A holy night to bury our woes
And a God sent time to ease our spirits!

    In Hindu myth Sleep is referred to as Nidra Devi and when she takes us in her fold we are free from all worries and woes and she is a great comfort to all of us. You have stressed that point, right.The last para' is the crown of the poem which is enjoyable. (Report) Reply

    shutdown time, the time when overload is circumvented and peace restores
    the strength of soul.Without it only madness prevails. (Report) Reply

    The backdropp of the silent night and the refuge of the man and the beast under the dark blanket of it are pictures of modest poetic perceptions. Life pulsating in its multitude forms however, struggles to feel the ultimate embrace of the mysterious divinity elusive of concerns, I am afraid. Well intended and well conveyed for releasing a fresh wave of hope relentless.... (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
