Wisdom of An Old Bard
by Prof. Siva Prasad Peddi
Bookmark and Share
 
An Old bard
In torn clothes
Drawn from
Riches to rags
 
Pitied not his condition
Thought not of his age
Philosophy in his song
Touching all the hearts
 
Every street
In the town
Is the stage
Where he sings
 
Selling wisdom
Seeking alms
His haunting tunes
Break the morning calm
 
After all he isn’t acting
A victim of circumstances
May be it’s his own making
But pathetically announcing
 
Life is anguish
Life is pain
Life is misery
Life is sorrow,
It comes fully laced
And it offers no retribution
 
Though there is happiness
Though there is charm
Though there is joy and
You do have everything
 
Still when you depart
You carry nothing
"Rain is water,
Water is rain
In between
The vapour
Is that ‘everything’"
