Dulwich Park In May - Poem by Ananta Madhavan

Birds at dormitory gossip,
Where the rhododendrons blaze
Many-coloured as the slacks
Under the slanting sun.

O man in the check-suit
Posing against the bower,
Your snap will miss the fragrance
Of this afternoon.

O toddler unconcerned
To snap the slanting time,
One day you will learn
What I nearly missed.
