Subroto Chatterjee


Death


Death is curt, death is cold,
Death is new, death is old.
Death is no summer, death is no fall;
It is for one, it is for all.

It is no low mist, nor a dark cloud,
Donne is mistaken: death is not proud.

Death is a player in the stage-
It is man's reason for his age.
Death is a cause, it is a reason;
It is Life's changing season.

Death is one moment too long;
Death is one reason beyond.

    This poem has some very specific points to be taken note of.......Though the rhyming scheme is not even, it is easily readable and very pronounced. arya (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
