Greetings fellow wonk!
Hope you’re great!
Today is World Poetry Day and I must admit poetries are some great magic! My favourite ones from my school days are – I wandered lonely as a cloud by William Wordsworth
– The Brook by Alfred Lord Tennyson
-O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman
Have you heard of them? I’d be delighted to know your favourites too!
And as for the one I’ve written, do read, like and comment!
The crazy wonk.

I am not a treasure to be hunted
Not a mystery to be solved,
Neither am I hole to dive in
Nor a game to be played to win;
I am not a glittering diamond
Nor a cake wanting to be devoured,
Neither am I that evergreen tree
Nor a bird that flies free;
I am not a river that flows eternally
Nor a clock with consistency,
Neither am I as busy as a bee
Nor as bustling as the sea;
All I am, is an artist’s abandoned painting
On borrowed colours, I am living,
I seek when there’s nothing to find
In the race of life I lag behind;
But don’t judge me on how I look
Because, I , am a closed book,
And as the world spans another mile
I am gathering reasons to smile.
