An Elegy to a Family House
by Dr. Ram Mehta
Bookmark and Share
  Why should I remain a family house
If I am dilapidated, shattered and tattered
In this summer of old age.

Why should I remain a family house
If the house garden bears a barren look
Tearing away its leaves and flowers.

Why should I remain a family house
If the birds do not build their nests
Migrating to some other places.

Why should I remain a family house
If I don't have to wait for birds' return
In the lonely colorless evenings.

Why should I remain a family house
If the inhabitants are in the outhouses
Dangling like jaundiced curtains.

Why should I remain a family house
If I am not cheered by the chirping
And joyful songs of my little birds.
