An Ode To Wıne


aan universal anecdote on pain
In frustration you are a companion
In limit you are an elixir and potion
A must you are in our celebrations
.Ambrosia secured through churning
By divinity and demons, of oceans,
You are a reward to their off springs.

Born you sre for the sublimation
Of everything humane, their emotions.
No poor soul could know truth eternal
Till the all knowing monarch did spell
Notion of producing you from foodgrains,
Keeping crores hungryfor the gains
Of the greedy, embodiment of devil.

From elixir, anecdote and a potion
Thry have transformed you in poison,
For uprooting of coming generations
Who could make superpower to nation.
Omnipresence as base you 've in potions,
Omnipotence you have for intoxication,
Best friend you are for those in agony,
Though deceptive mirth is your progeny.

You are in yourself were always fine
When you are only a peg of wine.
The unhappy can forget all the pain,
When you take them in your domain.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
