I wander like a dog 

on road, tram,plane 

and college side 

in dark and cloudy night 

seeking the rendezvous 

in nook and neek 

in motel and book shop 

in cafe' palace 

and hilly side 

I am your ardent 


Sometimes you on rickshaw 

sometimes you on foot 

sometimes you in college que

I wonder so reckless 

in timid frightening 

raining mist and dew 

You sip coffee, tea and juice 

you pip in outside the window 

temple mosque car wind blew 

you utter unquoth trouble 

you write and conceal a line 

you saw me and muttered 

you called me slow softly nice 

you pretty pretty pretty 

your rosary grace 

you pursue me 

you overtake me and smile 

you utter Childish Childish 

How Tender is night 

now you are not to meet 

your lad is faraway 

there are numbness barriers 

you have no approach in life 

I am your ardent eremite 

How Tender is the night!

    Friends may ask me about inspiration -- as it was written on 22/8/1984 where I recollected some reminiscences and wrote this poem but it was not published so today I rephrased it where I poured the feelings onto page because everyone likes to be frenzy for some one hence all activities elaborated here are the period from years 1975 to 1976.I got solace and comfort after writing this poem.
