Neela Nath


No Mystery


I am a commoner.
I laugh, I protest, I shout!
My home is my cozy nest.
I am a bird.
I stretch my wings to give
shade to my birdie.
No mystery is there.
I am not beautiful.
And also bear the mark
of time on my tanned skin.
Can you remember the
story of Bush or Out back?
I am a mother of that strata,
who cooks, stays back
to protect her daughter.
I'm the representative
of the middle-class lady.
I don't have wealth
but I try to keep
my good-for-nothing values!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
