The Creek of the Four Graves

I
I verse a Settler's tale of olden times
One told me by our sage friend, Egremont;
Who then went forth, meetly equipt, with four
Of his most trusty and adventrous men
Into the wilderness - went forth to seek
New streams and wider pastures for his fast
Augmenting flocks and herds. On foot were all
For horses then were beast of too great price
To be much ventured on mountain routes,
And over wild wolds clouded up with brush,
And cut with marshes, perilously deep.

So went they forth at dawn: and now the sun
That rose behind them as they journeyed out,
Was firing with his nether rim a range
Of unknown mountains that, like ramparts, towered
Full in their front, and his last glances fell
Into the gloomy forest's eastern glades
In golden massses, transiently, or flashed

Samuel Butler

Hudibras: Part 2 - Canto II

THE ARGUMENT

The Knight and Squire, in hot dispute,
Within an ace of falling out,
Are parted with a sudden fright
Of strange alarm, and stranger sight;
With which adventuring to stickle,
They're sent away in nasty pickle.

'Tis strange how some mens' tempers suit
(Like bawd and brandy) with dispute,
That for their own opinions stand last
Only to have them claw'd and canvast;
That keep their consciences in cases,
As fiddlers do their crowds and bases,
Ne'er to be us'd, but when they're bent
To play a fit for argument;
Make true and false, unjust and just,
Of no use but to be discust;
Dispute, and set a paradox

I am afraid that the pleasantness of an employment does not always evince its propriety.

The greater absurdities are, the more strongly they evince the falsity of that supposition from whence they flow.

The Realist, Impressionist And Me

uncompromising realists are the sky and land
the sea a die hard impressionist
and me, a romantic trying to evince lessons from both
to create an abstract and futuristic world

Imitation and Irritation

You women engineers working abroad,
imitate well the English manners stored.
You learn to say 'Excuse Me'
for the noise of coughing free;
but evince verve, the teasing words to hoard.

You scorn your in-law for clearing her throat
as infecting your child, whom she does dote.
The old people are often prone to cough,
For which, you scoff at them and make us laugh.

Forgetting their sacrifice, don't dare to irk.
You will face the same by a fateful quirk.

Sonnet: Do the Right Things

Are you comfortable in your coat/suit?
Does your neck turn freely while wearing your tie?
Do you evince joy, eating others’ fruit?
Better be pauper than rich man and die!

The things we do must suit the occasion;
We must do those things that suit too, the clime;
What is the use of living in mansion?
You should be content earning just a dime!

Copy not others nor ape someone else;
Do things your brain tells rightly nev’rtheless;
Nothing that’s earthly all the time sells;
Think of the orphans, handicapped, homeless!

You love your brethren and love God through them,
Man’s soul is priceless: costliest the gem!

Highway Trees

They group communalized
Like a panchayat counselling
Gapped irregular
Mangoe, coconut, plantain trees

Like timeless sentinels
High-stumped palmyra trees
watchful sparsely
whilst fronded palms
Fanning to the highway-heaven

Territoried etching karuvelam(Acacia arabica)
There and there from side slopes
Often punishing dirtying feet
Whilst swinging banyan monkeys
Dancing to the whirring breeze

Templed at the trunks yellowy
Mewling little neem cradles
Holy threaded to augural shade

Because Of Our Love's Devotion

Was this but a ruse, with smoke and mirrors?
Was it all at once fashioned to properly deal
With: your prayers, hopes, dreams and fears-
All at one time-to evince unequivocally how you feel
About so many different facets of your life, most beauteous?
How did I fare then, in this test-was I steadfast and most duteous
In my regard for you-whilst remaining to mine own self, true?
Only you know what transpired, and knew what I would do;
You alone were the Master of your own fate
And allowed that I too, may more clearly create
Mine own life, from the scape of our dreams!
Though, unto the rest of the world, it seems
An unmitigated disaster, of epic proportions-
You-and now I-know, it was because of our love's devotion!

The Thud Of Silence Was Like A Tsunami

What happened in London-town
Caused traditionalists to sport many a frown
Michelle Obama touched the queen
With bare arm around the royal beam

The thud of silence was like a tsunami
Heard from London to Miami
Never before in all times past
Have Londoners been quite so aghast

They even stalled their daily tea-time
Which they rarely miss in war or peace-time
Yet Prince Charles, the stalwart prince
Didn’t allow his royal feelings to evince

The Queen had never been touched before
Assuming one believes that English lore
But somehow or other she made it through
‘Cause she liked Michelle, her friend so new
