Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

A Snake Seizes


A snake seizes a mouse
And very easily swallows it
Likewise Almighty is always alert
And in due course of time He strike
The greedy who is running after
Material enjoyment always.

Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
