gurunAthan Posted November 27, 2020 Share Posted November 27, 2020 She never turns up!gurunAthan ramaNi(English Ghazal: iambic hexameter couplets) The sun goes down, the sky is blue — she ne'er turns up; The waves are red, even the air has hue — she ne'er turns up. The crowd is thin, I spot a couple 'hind the boat The boat and the net are decked with dew — she ne'er turns up. The lighthouse, lean and tall, its beacon yet to shine The ships are far between and few — she ne'er turns up. The broken moon is dim, the stars are yet to shine, I walk in sand, without a clue — she ne'er turns up. The waves adorn the sandy shore with froth and blob The time is up and overdue — she ne'er turns up. The couple 'hind the boat at some distance stood up And there she is! so that's the cue — she ne'er turns up. ★★★★★ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
