Lament, by Rajani Kanth


Paradise hath no  need of rules

Hades scribes a dozen score

The  generous spirit ranges free

The hidebound locks  the door –


I’ve  roamed  the barren fields of night

walked the  thorny wild

Borne the yoke of a thousand ills

Borne them meek and mild


Calm lies the diurnal shore

Though tempests break at sea

In  dearth of human solicitude

lies the true heart’s  atrophy


immure me in penury

steal from me my weal

let love but loan me one fair breath

and I shall, though dying, heal
