Treasure Island

Pradip Chattopadhyay

(28.01.1961 / Kolkata)

Nectarous


Lychee blackberry of sweetest variety
Shouts the vendor
They look juicily nice
But when I ask the price
Find it too high.

Why them forgone
Summer's yields live short
I lay my hand on one
They are money's worth.

And I think of my place
In next year's summer days
What if I vacate this space

Nothing forever stays.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
