  • (4/29/2009 5:02:00 AM)

    Being fully engaged, once again, with replying to another instalment of important letters from Members of “Metverse Muse”, Dr. Tulsi hopes to be back at this site in four or five days’ time.

    This is the most ABSURD poem I have ever read! Following the very guidelines contained in this so-called 'poem', if I say that I am not 'afraid' to confess that it is DREADFUL, I feel that the author of this piece should not mind it. The very thought that the author thinks that this is a 'POEM' fit to be included among his other poems, leaves me aghast with amazement!

    A graceful piece of art, as inspiring as it is moving - with many a metaphor meticulously used! Again, a ten.

    NEW YEAR GREETINGS (from Dr. H. Tulsi)

    GARDEN OF LIFE (by Dr. Tulsi)
    Like a lovely rose may the New Year bloom,
    Bedecking afresh your garden of life,
    For prickly thorns leaving no room,
    With fragrant petals may it be rife.

    May the brand new ship of the brand New Year
    Ply on waters smooth and clear,
    And ferry you quickly, safe and sound,
    To the place ashore for which you’re bound.

    WHEN NEW YEAR CALLS “I’M HERE! ” (by Dr.H. Tulsi)
    (Quatrains with a single Rhyme throught)

    While the three little words “Happy New Year”
    Again, like music, capture our ears,
    May bonny, bouncing, bright-eyed cheer
    Ring door-bells all and call “I’m here! ”
    May all your friends and relatives dear -
    Be they far or be they near -
    Be robbed by Old Year of all your fears
    And, by New Year, be cheated of tears!
    Away from hurdles may you veer
    And success-wards your journey steer.
    With perseverance may you spear
    Ahead, throughout your life’s career.
    May Health’s rosy face appear
    And Wealth’s footsteps may you hear.
    May Hope, the way for Happiness, clear.
    May Good Fortune bring up the rear.

    (A Villanelle)

    O fair New Year, in you we trust repose, -
    Since sent to us you are by our Saviour, -
    That, surely, you will wean away our woes.
    The previous year had dealt us many blows,
    Which unnerved us. To rid us of our fear,
    O fair New Year, in you we trust repose.
    Although, for ‘Peace’, we’d paid through our nose,
    ‘Violence’ rules the roost! Assure us, dear,
    That, surely, you will wean away our woes.
    We’re deafened by the cawing of the crows!
    Some songs of nightingales to let us hear,
    O fair New Year, in you we trust repose.
    ’A deadly threat ‘Corruption’ does pose!
    By taming it, we do expect O New Year
    That, surely, you will wean away our woes.
    Our ‘Joys’ are far outweighed by our sorrows;
    ‘Disease’ has driven ‘Health’ to the rear!
    O fair New Year, in you we trust repose
    That, surely, you will wean away our woes.

    I disagree with your statement that 'image and wonder suffer at the hand of form' A true poet is he who DOES NOT LET image and wonder suffer at the hand of form. Content sans Form is as bad as Form sans Content. Form is as IMPORTANT for Poetry as some of the things you've mentioned: imagery, word creation, internal movement etc.s
