Treasure Island

Sanjay Mehta

City Of Joy


Rich in culture
Vast in structure
Proudly
Boasts of legacy
Which
At times
Overweighs
Its underbelly

In tandem?
Yes
Think its denizens
Times of yore
With present.
City of joy
So much enjoyed
Joy, Joy and Joy
Enjoy
The ‘vicious’ cycle
Ganges to Hooghly
And the Bay
Look, beyond
The hay
Which has turned grey.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
