a pessimist is
nothing but an optimist
very well informed

I Love my Life, but not too well

I love my life, but not too well
To give it to thee like a flower,
So it may pleasure thee to dwell
Deep in its perfume but an hour.
I love my life, but not too well.

I love my life, but not too well
To sing it note by note away,
So to thy soul the song may tell
The beauty of the desolate day.
I love my life, but not too well.

I love my life, but not too well
To cast it like a cloak on thine,
Against the storms that sound and swell
Between thy lonely heart and mine.
I love my life, but not too well.

No matter what it is, if you get 10 people in the business talking about something, you get 10 different opinions, but you know, they're amazingly well informed.

They're calling their Washington sources at the NRC or in Congress and they're not hesitating to give their opinion, but their opinion, frankly, in those early days was not very well informed.

As soon as she gets her divorce one of us is going to marry her. We don't know which. She is about as beautiful a woman as I ever saw, and very witty and well-informed, but it would cost a good deal to keep her in diamonds.

In America every woman has her set of girl-friends some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other's affairs, who 'come out' together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.

Wash It Well

Wash it well and present it nicely to your lover,
For this is about the muse of love in the land of beautiful roses;
And like the joy in the land of peace,
But, this sweet love is all about you.

Shape, ape, cape, rape, drape, crape, grape, nape, jape, tape;
Setting it well and getting in,
But was it well and present it very nicely for your lover!
For, walking in into this game is like the rivers of waters.

The New Nature

A very sophisticated cat and dog
Together sit, quietly upon a log
They observe a lark
Hopping through Central Park
Both by instinct
Desire to leap
But, both by sheer will
Remain perfectly still -
The wild bird, fully unaware
Passes inches in front of the pair
Merrily singing it's song
As it bounces along -
After the prey has flown
One thing remains to be known:
Why had neither the dog nor cat
Been on the attack?
' Quite easily explained '
Comes their mutual refrain,
' As well-informed, green-thinking, modern agrarians
We have, ofcourse, become organic vegetarians.'

Sonnet: Is There Not Joy?

Is there not joy in being man, woman?
Is there not joy inhabiting the earth?
Is there not joy in being an Indian?
Is there not joy in having still our breath?

Is there not joy in being born well formed?
Is there not joy with senses all intact?
Is there not joy with brain so well informed?
Is there not joy in living for truth/ fact?

Is there not joy believing in one God?
Is there not joy in fighting evils?
Is there not joy when Friend is but the Lord?
Is there not joy resisting all devils?

Is there not joy preparing for Heaven?
Is there not joy to say always, `Amen’?

It Aint No Big Thing But Its Growing

(words & music by merrit - joy - hall)
Your losing interest in me and its showin
It aint no big thing but its growin
The pain of heartbreak Ive just started knowin
Well, it aint no big thing but its growin
Every day the hurt grows bigger than before
But Ill pretend I dont know this
But if I can hold you one day more
Youve got the look of someone whos goin
Youre gonna leave me and its showin
A little tear I can feel start to flow
It aint no big thing but its growin
Well every day the hurt grows bigger than before
But Ill pretend I dont know this
Well, if I can hold you one day more
Youve got the look of someone whos goin
Well, youre gonna leave me and its showin
A little tear I can feel start to flow
Well it aint no big thing but its growing
No, it aint no big thing but its growing

Good sites

So many social sites are for use
Readers can use and misuse
For scoring the level against
But it is much to the against interest

The sites invite wrath
Over somebody's death
If misreported or story unrelated
Putting climax and highly exaggerated

They are absolutely right if curbed freedom slight
It is not at all right
To malign and use name
For earning the blame

They are not that influential
To show it as essential
Even if name is worth condemnation
We have no business to do any revelation

It may do harm
Relation may not remain warm
Damage suits may follow
Certainly sites can't allow

Let us extend our support
Maintain good rapport
With utmost good faith
While putting the articles forthwith

It is privilege to find platform
To stay in touch and remain well informed
We are so much at advantageous position
We pay little or nothing for composition

I shall pay my complement
For providing a place for movement
Whether be it a commercial or honorary
Every part in society is essential and necessary

The Woman Who Loves Poesy

She has a twenty years old daughter but she leads a single life
And she knows what it feels like to be a mother but not to be a wife
Her great love is Goddess Poesy only poesy she admire
And her creative source it comes from poesy and poesy in her verse inspire.

She writes such beautiful poetry as a poet she is well known
And as a genuine wordsmith her reputation it has grown
The woman who loves poesy is good at what she do
At least one can say of her to her own self she is true.

Since writing poetry can be a hungry belly game the well informed say
She works as a bar maid in the Golf Club Rooms for to earn her hard earned pay
But all of her spare time devoted to poesy since poetry she loves to write
Her poems on many different subjects are a source of delight

To poetry lovers who read her verses and many of her say
That from penning verse she will grow wealthy and become quite well known one day
But she does not write for fame or money she only writes because she
Happens for to be a person devoted to Goddess Poesy.

Cleverly Laid

It has not only been said but cleverly laid
Every dog has its price and simply paid
No one gets it simply for free
It is not that you get the fruit when hit the tree

One must understand the scenario
When you realize only self and approach as abnitio
We can’t take others responsible for our grief
They are not bound to give us any relief

Time and tide waits for none
When it comes you should not be seized with storm
You should be fully conversant with and well informed
Dark clouds will never appear at horizons to warn

You may age with passage of time
Your vision and teeth may disappear sometimes
You may make desperate attempts to hide
Yet it is left to self conscience to confide

There should remain no illusion
Not a slight thought should emerge to lead to confusion
You may try to look young and enterprising
But to your utter dismay it may look illusory and surprising

Time is not only money but very precious
Money multiplies if used cleverly and continuous
Ride over wings and fly towards object
That may be counted as hilarious and adventurous act

Nothing On But The Radio

I sure do hope this is a long night
Cause Ive never felt one so right
Each look into your eyes I fall in
A little more and more
Looks like we started us a fire
Wrapped up in flames of desire
With every touch they're burning higher
Two shadows dancing on the wall
With nothing on but the radio
Feel the music playing soft and slow
You and me and the lights down low
With nothing on but the radio
Well fall asleep here in the moonlight
In tangled sheets well be here all night
And when we wake up in the morning
We might stay like this all day
Two people meant to be together
Two lovers dreaming of forever
And it just keeps on getting better
With every tender little kiss
With nothing on but the radio
Feel the music playing soft and slow
You and me and the lights down low
With nothing on but the radio
Two people meant to be together
Two lovers dreaming of forever
And it just keeps on getting better
With nothing on but the radio
Feel the music playing soft and slow
You and me and the lights down low
With nothing on but the radio
You and me and the lights down low
With nothing on but the radio

Mind fluctuates

“Old habits die hard” as saying goes
But what human mind thinks and does
It tries to rise but fall back with little fear
People may speak and it has to bear

Never get discouraged
As in past you have tactfully managed
If not fully transformed
But you have acted and remained well informed

We are not slave of the habits
That is on negative side and considered s debit
We are supposed to come out
End to it with complete rout

Nothing can run for longer period on set lines
You have to create by lane or sidelines
So incase you need escape route
You can walk slowly on one foot

Time may compel you to shed the differences
You may have to draw the correct inferences
There might arise many instances
Where you will have to clear your stances

Person is adapted to set norms
He may find it smooth until warned
If something goes wrong
He needs to amend and remain among

Nothing can protect you from established practice
That may be easily understood and noticed
You may be cheated on various occasions
That may compel you to address the questions

It is neither your strength
Nor a set wave length
You need to fluctuate and respond
As it may then properly correspond

It is nature’s law to expose to change
Even seasons respond with and manage
We as human being need to adjust
That is demand and of course must

Verses Form

To write well doesn't amount means to fight
It is well within ambit and right
The words come out in form of spirit of light
That flashes across mind and travel straight

The readers are wise enough
To pick what is smooth and what is rough!
A path that can satisfy their urgent need
Put control over worldly things and greed

Real poet is one that makes you laugh
Remains with you in happiness till last
Share grief with solace in real sense
Without adding any fuel to make you tense

Some of the poets unnecessarily force their views
Never come out of moon light and it's over view!
We can praise the nature but not exactly in imagery
It has something to do with human nature and misery

Many people prefer dark for the want of real guidance
That can't be provided by good books at once
It has to have ever lasting effect with bold assertion
Not to have any excuse at last minute of desertion

It is known from first instance
When words are put for acceptance
Readers come out with emphatic yes
Or no with annoyance on their face

I shall put it bluntly
The poems should not go silently
It has its own role to play
Remain at heart and permanently stay

What after all is the verses form?
When people remain loosely attached and well informed
We are committed to human cause
We can't afford to have even little pause

Play of togetherness

Yes nice play of togetherness
Feel nothing different with total oneness
They need no empire or vast land
Come together only to become friends

Nothing to bother not even house
Only sweet passions to rouse
Act may bring so much happiness and melody
Apart from playing part assigned by nobody

Do the birds care about norms?
Are they in touch or well informed?
They know the arrival of spring
They have only to wait for surprises to bring

They need no material to build nest
They have their own are as best
No art, no labor but little care
Penetration in nest nearly impossible to dare

No scientific medium to air the music
Peace and melody with so much magic
Anybody may stop on the way and watch
Try desperately to have glimpse and catch

How much closeness with mother earth?
Roots deep in and to hold for worth
May never fail or create shortage
Peaceful living with clear message

I heard sparrows have disappeared
Near extinction and new births totally feared
No more colorful birds may be seen on our window
We have smashed the nests and new one did not allow

We face Tsunami and murderous cyclones
Uproot completely and leave behind bones
Will we not take any note of disasters?
Will not hear call from our divine masters?

Birds do for us nice singing
Bright sunshine with little warning
Let us be friendly with entire creatures
We can build and leave with happy future

Life being an obstacle

Feel totally free about the life being as an obstacle
Don’t forget it has limited means and circle
Think if you can come out of its set norms
Be little considerate and well informed

You have abilities from within to cultivate
Harness the energy and suitably relate
Things my move on with precision and accuracy
Assert yourself without any show of strength or diplomacy

So much is written about life and its impact
It has remained important and lively subject
Every individual may narrate it from different angle
Someone has special attachment for love triangle

Some are so lucky to have every thing from the birth
They have everything in abundance and no shortage or dearth
They may view it differently as life is so lovely and hilarious
They have only one aim life that is earn more and become famous

Some remain semi starved and struggle through out the tenure
Life is so horrible for them and every breath is so unsure
Second move on their part is so much threatened with reprisals
Every moment they die for its redressal and disposals

But nonetheless it is enterprising and full of adventures
You can heavily bank upon and fully secure
It has made you to face any eventuality
You have now come out as fine blend of rare quality

You can now assert with full authority
It had been your dream and now has turned into reality
You are not counted responsible for any outcome
Yet success is yours and you got to welcome

Well (Dug Hole)

It is age old tradition to dig well on highway
Travelers not to face difficulties on mid way
Living being may find it real and fine gesture
Tree branches near by may reflect true nature

Rulers, donors or wealthy generally constructed
To be used by all and normally so instructed
It was noble work and spoke of very good act
People may remember as it was common fact

In well, deep calm blue water appeared on surface
If you bend to see, may reveal your true face
Though you may be in hurry but find peace
You may rest there with calm and ease

Well may serve well so long it remains as well
How to preserve it may be like story to tell
So little in common but much to reveal
Good deeds and noble act and nothing to conceal

Go near to well and you won’t regret
No complaint even if you take water out in bucket
Passers by may stay for while and have rest
Thirst may be quenched on the way as crucial test

Great people remained aloof but acted like well
Never confined knowledge within or tried to sell
They might have preferred to store but ignored
Could sleep well over the books and snored

Knowledge is like deep well meant for common use
May stink if remained for long time without use
A well is called “well” if used very well
Whose beginning is well the end may also be well

Now wells are no more in use and remain as monuments
Served the purpose well at the time of crucial moments
Passers by and travelers noted its importance
Is it not the sheer neglect that we plead our ignorance?

One in million chances

It was one in million chances to succeed
The entire scene is engulfed with cast and creed
No one has spared the Indian soil with their known greed
How could one stay aloof, watch and soil not be freed?

Parliamentary democracy is only shield to cheat
Smile on face when they give call and meet
Countless hours are wasted on gherao and stalling
The emergence of youth on scene is new beginning

People are disgruntled not with liberal democracy
It has established people’s supremacy
Everything is done on the name of people’s welfare
If fact their interest is compromised and who takes care?

The pilferage and looting of public money is on large scale
The judiciary has almost become redundant and failed
Some of the selected cases come for public notice
It is really a sad episode and rings decent demise

No country can prosper if stringent rules are not applied
The public is not kept well informed and information supplied
They have right to know what is going on in highest seat of land
Who is real protector of their interest and take the cause to stand

It is uncertain as of now in the collusion diplomacy
Every part y is consolidating position and remain busy
National interest is not their concern but a compulsion
The whole of nation’s priority is shrouded with confusion

We hope nations may survive but leave behind mistrust
There is no leniency to be shown to them or is must
If they fail or try to subvert the national interest
They must be given deterrent punishment and understood by the rest
