Here are few of my favorite poems from the book:

 

I Shall not Care by Sara Teasdale

When I am dead and over me bright April
Shakes out her rain-drenched hair,
Tho’ you should lean above me broken-hearted,
I shall not care.
I shall have peace, as leafy trees are peaceful
When rain bends down the bough,
And I shall be more silent and cold-hearted
Than you are now.

Heart, we will forget him! by Emily Dickinson

Heart, we will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you’re lagging.
I may remember him!

***

Buried Love by Sara Teasdale

I have come to bury Love
Beneath a tree,
In the forest tall and black
Where none can see

I shall put no flowers at his head,
Nor stone at his feet,
For the mouth I loved so much
Was bittersweet.

I shall go no more to his grave,
For the woods are cold.
I shall gather as much of joy
As my hands can hold.

I shall stay all day in the sun
Where the wide winds blow,
But oh, I shall cry at night
When none will know.

***

From the blurb:

“love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail”

– (E E Cummings)

Love is always kind. It is enduring. It does not bear a grudge. Love always trusts. It is never selfish. It is unbound. It is hopeful. It always defends. However, love, as we all know, is a two-sided thing; with the joy comes the pain!

“The hottest love has the coldest end.” – Socrates

Whereas the joy of love comes as a swift flowing river, the pain when arrives, is always more intense, more unbearable, and sharper – the river of joy comes first and then follows the vast ocean of pain. Love and pain – these are the two powerful emotions that almost all of the classic poets have touched in their work.

A collection of sixty-one love poems of the most influential poets like Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, E E Cummings, Sara Teasdale, Amy Lowell, Robert Browning, John Clare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, YOU left me, sweets, two legacies is available both as paperback and eBook and is a collection to savor.

My Father – A Poem

Standard

dad

If I have to write a poem about my father

it has to be about integrity

and kindness —

the selfless kind of kindness

that is so very rare

I am sure there will be many people

living somewhere who must be as kind as him

but what I mean to say is

I have not met one yet

 

and when it comes to helping others

he always helps too much

and as the saying goes —

help someone, you earn a friend.

help someone too much,

you make an enemy. —

so you know the gist of what

I’m trying to say here

 

anyways I was talking about the

poem about my father

it has to be about

passion

and hard work

because you see

you cannot separate these

things from him

they are part of him as his two eyes and

two hands and his heart and his soul

and his whole being

and you cannot separate

wind and waves

or living and the universe

or earth and heavens

and although he never got any

award from bureaucracy

the students he taught ages ago

still touch his feet and some

of them are the people

you have to make

an appointment to meet even if

it is for two minutes of their time

and that’s a reward for him

bigger than any other that

some of his colleagues got

for their flattery

 

and also I have to write about

reliability as well

as the sun always rises

and the snowflakes are always six-folds

and the spring always comes

and the petals of a sunflower and every flower

follows the golden ratio of symmetry

my father never fails to

keep his promise

 

I have to mention the rage as well

that he always carries inside him

like a burning fire

for wrongdoings

for injustice

 

and now

he carries a bitterness too

for people-

who used him good

and discarded-

as it always happens with every good man

in our world of humans

 

and you must be thinking he has

learned his lessons well

you go to him —

it does not matter who you are

if he knows you

or you are a stranger from

other side of the world —

and ask for his help

he will be happy to do so

 

as you must know

people

never change

not their soul in any case.

The Things Do Change

old-book-2256073_960_720

It does not matter what the people say

the time changes and many things change

the weather for example

and flow of a river

the months and the years

the flowers die

and the dreams too

the love does not last forever

and the people change

it does not matter what the people say

the time changes and many things change

Is not it amazing

how it carries its

body, the colour of

deep ocean

with

wings as light and thin as silk

and flies from leaf to leaf

and how it adores

the green grass, the trees,

the flowers, the morning sun,

the summer wind

and how it cherishes

its short, humble life

 

while the world goes on

as it must

and we humans

forever

dream of rising.

doesn’t it live

better

than us humans?
