Little Book Of Poems

 
just one of many one collects

 

Little book of poems
bound in red leather,
gold embossed.
Sixteen poems.
Nine, long, innovative,
written in anticipation
of the reader’s response,
or patience.

Six, thought-provoking,
each a tiny dictionary;
two unintelligible.
One poem, simple, beautiful,
ascribed anon.
Inside the back cover, pencilled,
two shillings and sixpence.
It was either this
or a hamburger
in 1960.

So much of innocence, sentiment, nostalgia and values contained in that little book of poems that’s been with you for six decades! Very emotional and pleasant to read.
Warm Regards, Gomathi
