No Holiday


I would want no holiday
Not for a second or whole day
Twenty four hours in a day are less
Lots of unfinished work is to be finished

People may not appreciate
May not take pain to relate
About work done in life span
As to forget is human

I love to work in old fashion
To work with dedication
What is left then to have good relation?
Self discipline with least affiliation

It works comfortably well in new situation
As no one wants to have free continuation
It is with this intention
That those moral values are on declination

Well it appeals me less
If demand is put forward on face
Honorary service is always rendered willingly
It must come from within and readily

Many people mushroom
Under the disguise and create space in room
You will never find statues erected in their honor
Or words inscribed on plate with praise to remember

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
