When a Jilted Heart Revolves to Rise

December 3, 2017 | By

A lyrical poem by UGC junior research fellow Sourav Paul.

“Keep the feet you on, hush!  The moon is full and bright.”

The lights are not yet off
The street is long and wide
Circus of stars are hunting along
The moon is full and bright.

Miles to go alike the miles you pass’d
Lonely crowd is gathering tonight
Keep the feet you on, hush!
The moon is full and bright.

Flames and tears have seen
Darkness grow and fight
Winds and showers – welcome!
The moon is full and bright.

Who has seen the man
Sleeping in the caves beside?
When worldly feelings are dead
The moon is full and bright.

Anon! desires waking shadows
Stretched out of heat and might
Blow away the glass of fire
The moon is full and bright.

Frenzied thoughts may tick the hours
The clock of thwarted plight
Where the hell you try to delve
The moon is full and bright.

Once the rope you find a null
The snake is high to bite
Tender is the singing grass
The moon is round and white.
