Freedom Courageous

Poem By Natarajan Ramaseshan

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?

Will anyone sell out the sun upon the sky
To buy some glow-worm flying not so high?
Losing Independence, the apple of one's eye
Will one remain servile, hands-tied just to survive?

Will anyone, desiring worldly pleasures
Forsake the glory of freedom's treasures?
Will not people mock, scorn and jeer
At trading eyes for a painting here?

Translated from Tamil by R.Natarajan

Hello Halloween

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

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.
