Indira Renganathan


To The Ocean


It's thou dawning horizone
That dots the first sindhur
Lambent on earth's crinion
Bubbling with waving freshener

It's thee in morntide light
Bumpy-bumpy-busy wavering-
Over a pretext for a breakfast
As if it is earth-heaven's wedding

It's thee on slumbering nap
With bellyful salty food and aqua
Under sunny shade in a wavy trap
As if feasted in meridian awe

Plentiful thee, in plentiful harmony
For plentiful people along the border
Thou rollers in tender melody-
Seems a warm evening wedding- splendour

And thee! why so awful
In sunless hours in spumy fear?
Sembling a human life frightful?

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
