English Poetry


Stick out my head from my bed,

its not morning, the sun’s delayed

or its dark, it’s the moon instead.


Under the blanket, drowned in a sheet

let me go back, slipped in it

a few more hours, a few more dreams, let me cheat.


Wearing days brought me no myself,

my time was paid, and tiredness had no help,

if not, be it, the bed at least be of self.


A few moments to live a little pleasant, a little lazy

my blanket and me, took away, a tour as cozy

holidays – my dreams, those destinations easy.

    Ulhas, read it on my phone so laynut a soblem. Read it 3/4 tines, rhyming very clever and language very subtle. The idea of lazing in bed is well expressed. How we ever dream? Not lazy at all! Enjoyed very much. Cant rate on my phone, will do later

    Dear Ulhas, It seems to me as if you also dreamt of this poem and penned
    it when awakened. Very nicely narrated the real holiday leisureliness, though
    it may or may not be quite personal ! Please go ahead with such laconic
    juvenilias retrospecting your gap since 31st ultimo ! a.k. goswami.

  16. ashwini kumar goswami says:

    Ps: My latest poem “omnium gatherum” dated 5th instant is there for the
    perusal of all the dear witty critics/commentators, please !
    a.k. goswami.

  17. Sorry I’m late!
    HEy Ulhas. Refreshing stuff, this. Not changed, but your writing style has evolved A LOT. Clever clever rhyming. I’ll be honest, some of your earlier poems had some forced rhymes. Not even one here. Beautiful. And the way you portrayed it, I could actually feel the warmth of the sheet. Bliss.

    (+) – Exceptional writing style
    (-) – You deserve it. None in particular.

      @Shreyansh Sen Sharma,

      Sir, thanks…………that means…………….dil pe pathhar rakhke apne comments kiye thee………:) just kidding sir…………..

      Sometimes to make the flow……flow smooth, we have to force rhymings…even if they are not of your choice…

      Thank you again sir……

    PS: To make the title of my poem referred to as “omnium gatherum” Anglice,
    I have changed the title to be “HETEROGENEITY” hence forward, please
    note. a.k. goswami.
