Romen Basu As A Poet


Rome Basu
As a poet is a globe-trotter,
An insider as well as an outsider
As he lived and served in the U.N.O.
As an official of it
And wrote poems
Besides being a novelist
And a short story writer.

Gliding on Silent Waters,
The Unquiet Waves,
The Surrendered Self,
Wings at a Distance,
Committed Footprints,
The poetry-volumes of
His own tenor and type
To make a way into
The realms of it.

A poet of observation and scrutiny,
Natural calm and quietness
With flutter and fermentation,
Glow and radiation,
Photos snapped
At daybreak and twilight,
He keeps saying the things.

He loses when he commits with his footprints,
But where he surrenders
And is emotional is no doubt fine,
Though the matter somwhere gets thin
But instead of, is meditative
And of a contemplative order
And he can never be sidetracked.

The things he narrates and the references referred
May refer to other climes and conditions
Other than those of India
As his is not a spring of India,
May be it of New York or elsewhere
Lived and visited,
Reminisced and recollected
For a narration and portrayal.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
