Birthday Of An Abandoned Child.

A child born in street way to a mother
What importance the birth day to it
The child abandoned in somewhere
And got rehabilitated by a kind heart
The birthday he offered in records
That is the birthday for this child
The birthday no more accurate in the case
But accurate in terms of records
When it became old and well settled
He happened to know his birth in street
He offered his wealth to the needy children
And gave the portion of the wealth
For charities to the abandoned children
For educating the orphaned children
He remembered his plight of birth always
A birth of a human being important
In terms of individual awakening it matters
A perfect boon and help to the needy require.

Poetry is an individual communication not a group sport. Each reader's response is as valuable as the next. The learned man's response is as true and valuable as the uneducated man's. We write to communicate.
brilliant analogy...
And yet the learned men were wrong, The simple folk were right. very blunt conclusion, this poem is very straightforward but this unmask it to the point of just being an upfront statement. what makes the learned men wrong? and why would they laugh at a new planet? have you ever heard of planetary criticism? is the solar system an art? this to-the-point metaphor is nonsensical at best. if they knew each smallest star and have access to see all things in the sky, then why is the new planet beyond their vision? also, a new planet does not shine rays and is invisible to the naked eye as a new planet would not be able to just appear haphazardly. stars are not planets.
