Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The anger of the virtuous persons never hurts!


The fellows of turpitude,
if they differ due to extreme anger,
are comparable with broken stone,
they never reunite!

There are others,
when they differ, their anger
is comparable to a split in the gold,
they will reunite if they are pacified!

The anger of the virtuous persons
will leave like the split made in water
by the arrow aimed from the bow,
it never hurts, but heals instantly!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
