(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

There are three kinds of people


At noon in a summer season,
Used to be out with a reason,
Troops of boy, all elder to me,
In an orchard, with them, I used to be,
Caring their mangos with many kinds,
So many boys so many minds.

Long gone the year, I lost my childhood.
Yet, I remember, with pretty good,

Reference from that event, I concluded,
There are three kinds of people, included,
One who climbed up the tree, and
Second stoned to the mango, and
The third sat under the tree with a hope.

Thing that lured at that time, a joyful cup
I always stood with them, who climbed up..

    All of them have different traits. Along with courage and craze, patience is too required sometimes. You have composed a nice poem here. (Report) Reply

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
