I came across this interesting poem by Ruskin Bond. Read and enjoy





“Do you believe in ghosts?”
Asked the passenger
On platform number three.
‘I am a rational man,’ said I
‘I believe in what I can see –
Your hands, your feet, your beard!’
‘Then look again,’ said he,
And promptly disappeared! :( :laugh:

    That's a very nice poem, although I have some of his books, I had never yet read any of his poems. This is hilarious, thanks for posting it.

    One more by Ruskin

    RAINDROP

    This leaf, so complete in itself
    Is only a part of the tree.
    And this tree, so complete in itself,
    Is only a part of the forest.
    And the forest runs down from the hill to the sea,
    And the sea, so complete in itself,
    Rests like a raindrop
    In the hand of God.

    Wow, that's another very lovely poem. Kudos to you Rajesh for posting such lovely poems, and I really feel for today's children who miss out on reading because of TV and computers.

    @Rajani, thanks for missing our poems :) Its nice to know that you are being missed. Maybe will do write one, but the inspiration is missing, at least for now! :(

    Interesting!!

    In feb 11, I was on my journey from Delhi to Jabalpur.In the evening hours, a person asked for lift at Gwalior.I was alone and was driving myself. I offered him lift.He was to go to Jhansi which was around 1.5 hours drive from Gwalior. As the time progressed,there was darkness all around and we were moving through the way where no person was there for miles.Even the road conditions were bad. That person asked me that where I was coming from and where to go. I promptly replied that I keep on moving from Gwalior to Jhansi regularly as I had met with an accident on this way only two years back and died on the spot.

    I was joking but that person started getting nervous and appeared like he was about to die.He touched me to ensure that I was alive.

    Arise Awake and Rest Not till the Goal is Achieved.

    A very interesting tale from Mukesh! Rajesh's second quote of Ruskin's poem too was brilliant! Keep it up!
