Ages should be with me


What will you choose if you..quoth he
'This is the beautiful world and me: -
My choice is not to keep mountainous age,
‘Tis not my desire, 'Ages should be with me'.

Before the utterance of words from the palmist
Before he would dragged my hand, I put in his hand
'Ah! I see, crabbed line and..., lo it has wrought.
'Ya, .its Silver hand with moon's spot
But Fate...Ah! this line is..Right-self created
Lines! Sun, Mercury. Venus..Okay, but..- The pot'

Sir, rays of your Eyes are very hot
Lest it should melt and mingle, please leave,
Let me go now, have to work a lot.


'He defied, said wot, two life line-
This is life line.....This is called sister line...
Ah, pines tree, you know, your life... Late shine '

Sir, Look, this life of mine will hie,
Not worried, laughingly I will depart
Saying everybody, Allah Hafiz and good bye
Worried.. Please, guide me to preserve
Eternity under the sovereignty of Allah
What deed I do so as to deserve? //

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
