Me and poetry


To read to ponder over I write
Applaud or abhor in your hands
Popular or perennial time only decides
Encouraging words if any enthuse my moods

Amazing are the talents adoring here
Awestruck I am at the flow of their excellence
Pursuit of knowledge propelled from here
Generations to come shall cherish these writings

A name among the famed
A desire to be among exalted
A pride derived from fearless writes
Nothing unusual but natural for any poet

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
