Gloom and Glory, a Pleasant Blend!

The English version of my Hindi verse.
 This poem I've written keeping the picture below in mind.


Gloom and Glory, a Pleasant Blend!


Let us witness a pleasant blend
Of gloom and glory in the game of life.
This game or sport is lovely highly ,
A sport of rout and triumph also.

Black colour is the shade of glumness
Dazzling Light is the gleam of glee.
Things may have a side so lustrous
And also rusty and dusty spots.

Nights will dress in apparels dark
But the master Sun is in shimmering bright.
See all chirping creatures in sky,
Exhibit excessive vim they in action.

See the sky so proud beyond
The sea is mighty though on ground.
On heating the objects turn very hot
The thing same can be cool on freezing.

Trouble and turmoil dissolve in solvents.
Worry we needn’t, for hitches have keys.
Let us unload the mass, our minds’
That plugs our holes to outside world.   

Rejoice at our achievements full
As life is a path, petite and short.
Evade all that nibbles our quiet
Take a sleep of peaceful night.

  1. beautifully narrated
    As life is a path, petite and short.
    Evade all that nibbles our quiet
    Take a sleep of peaceful night
