Writing: Intro to Poetry,Day Nine: Landscape

Poetry, Day Nine: Landscape

Poetic Device: Apostrophe

Dear Tagore,

You  left this earth long ago,

Your songs and poems we treasure more,

It always feels you are back as someone else,

In one of the verses of your song,

It says, ‘who says I am not there,

on a fine morning, I will take part in every

game, I will have a new name, then who will say,

I am, not there that morning.’

I wish you really showed up one

morning, so I can tell you,

how much I love singing your songs.

Wherever you are enjoy yourself,

you’ve left enough poems and songs

for generations to come!

Thank you!

…….…………………………………………. 🙂

    Thank you for this very nice poetic
    appeal to Tagore. You so often bring
    him alive for all of us!

    All good wishes,


  2. Thank you very much for sharing this. All your posts are always a treat to read and when you write about someone like Tagore, who was himself a master of sublime expression, the impact is even more amazing 🙂
