Caricature By A Californian Artist

Poem By Natarajan Ramaseshan

Daniel was his name, an artist
One day with him we had a tryst
For dollars twenty it was done-
A caricature with lots of fun.
His sketch pen moved on paper board
Like brand new car on a smooth road
A stroke here and, oh, a stroke there
Made all passers -by stand and stare
First the nose, then eyebrows and eyes
Shape of face, then crown drawn to size
Both lips and ears, cheeks and forehead
Step by step, his work went ahead
God created us on this earth
On his pàper- it was rebirth!

(On 10/05/2014 we visited the San Diego zoo. There an artist drew our caricature (me and my wife) . I wrote this poem on that experience)

Hello Halloween

Hello, hello Halloween
Fun and frolic, you have been.
Eerie stories doing rounds
Shades of candles forming hounds.

Freedom Courageous

He who yearns for freedom courageous
Will he ever crave for anything outrageous?
He who longs for ambrosia divine
Will he ever think of toddy or wine?

Rise At Dawn

Little children, rise at dawn-
Behold all the joys of morn!
An early bird chirps or sings;
Fragrance rides on airy wings;

William Tell

William Tell, the hero of the Swiss-
Bowman whose aim ne'er went amiss.

Far and wide spread his fame

'She'

When
she smiles
an unblemished morning flower
unfolds.

San Diego

Go to San Diego, you go
Learn history of times long ago.
Where cultures Spanish-Mexican
Blend with trend that's American.
