Tell me Sun


Tell me Sun
- - - - - - - - -
Tell me Sun
Who is the dearest?
The spring or the autumn
One charms you with a rose
Another with a thorn
And equal upon them you call
Without any discrimination
O Sun! What a profound mind
You carry when you touch all
And in reverence deep
Down goes my head thou Sol
A life that never dies
Do tell me
Who is the dearest?
The spring or the autumn
For the circumference you carry
Spurs my soul to muse upon
And that goes beyond my perception.........

    Sun sheds light on the brute and the beast... on the king and the pauper.. He never discriminates... He is steady and never fails to light each day.... A great tribute to the sun! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful question,
    put to the sun,
    penned down in a poem.
    The sun said
    the answer lies within you
    for me both rose and thorns are same
    as I shine same on you.
    I make no discrimination
    its you who make this discrimination
    you have put a barrier between rose and thorn
    search for the answer
    the answer lies within in you....
    I hope so you are satisfied with the suns answer.
    Don't take my this comment seriously. I was just kidding. The real fact is answer lies within us. but we search outside...Beautiful poem once again from your pen. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
