English Poetry

An eager beginner’s trusted cicerone
In the gossamer of abecedarian warrens
An ever-flowing brook beside a book-worm
Slaking his never-ending thirst for a fresh idiom
A writer’s permanent bed-side companion
Blooming in him, on and on,
Novel thought-jasmines
And a poet’s handy spice-box of imagery
For ready use in his verse-cuisine
It’s nothing but our dear dictionary

A word anew when learned opens the gates
To the splendid new world of ken and acumen
Let us master the word, its usage and spirit
Right and perfect and offer to our fellow men
Our best message, sweet, yet candid and straight

    Anuradha,
