A Sonnet On Subash

A SONNET ON SUBASH
- Ramesh Iyengar

( A sonnet written on my student Subash)

Rolls he a toy car like a kid
Eats candies, sweetmeat right below hid
Brings his pockets stuffed always
His large mouth now and then he fills
A glutton, nay a monster in food
Know not I, for he is no good.
Childish pranks in him so many
True virtues, studious, not any.
Eating his passion, sleepy his wont
To the teacher listening he can’t.
Writing, reading, learning, doing,
all unknown for Subash; for playing
Chatting, drawing, are to all he belong
Thus, the school years go all along.

Sonnet - 15 ( A counsel's complaint)

Sonnet

A Counsel's Complaint

These few words to the judge penned humbly
My regret that the suit instant is too wobbly
Too elongated, protracted as anaconda's tail
Vulnerable to further delay with no curtail
Much long ago the case did commence here
In hope full to yield fruits so fair
This plaintiff too decrepit to sit or walk
In debilitated state and too torn to talk
An aged widow dragging her evening life
When to end this prolonged court strife ?
Wise men say ‘ All is well that ends well'
Yet unknown if this ends well or at ill
This tedious trial doth tire all here
Barring this defendant in gladness sheer

Advocate

SONNET--Breakfast in Gurunathan Cafe

A Sonnet

Breakfast in Gurunathan Café

You that seateth café by Andal temple beside
Bestride upon stool behind kerosene stove
Busy with thy wares, quick in spirit
One that dons a banian snow – white
Schooling thou hast none, lettered scarce
Yet schooled in catering makes one amaze
As dosas hot on plate spread as lotus pad
Dawn lights the day, the town unfold
What art, subtle blessed skill thou possess
To churn out those gentle idlis
White as lily, soft jasmine, no crusts
Better than my better half’s breasts?
Piping coffee, crisp vada, sambar of onion
Tingling in taste, neat recipe fine.

Vote of thanks on a school cabinet induction ceremony

Vote of thanks on a school cabinet induction ceremony

SONNET

Here all we do assemble in a mass
To install a cabinet fair as a flower vase.
For each to assume duties variant
To render services for year concurrent
Do we bless them for taking a role
And each to act in vigour, in whole.
And for everyone gathered here
Our thanks heartfelt that is due and fair
And thank audience what have they done.
The events nicely as made, the day was won.
Thus these ceremonies we finish
Contented, cheer’d all with a heart of relish.
Behold hither our banners, colours flourish.
One and all we thank, all with heart’s grace.

A sonnet - On Rashmika's Wedding

A sonnet - On Rashmika's Wedding

As white-mist chill fine descends too low
Over thy abode atop a mountain high
Ye, the daughter of fair one lofty above
Couched, comforted in life cool, cushy though
Little birds chirp perched on creepers low
Wake gently, rich Sam's sweet pet
As east's eye in the sky doth open
Gently, too gently wake and see without
A charming, young lad, too stately person
Presented here, young dame's hands to take
Blush thee? ! Behold him in bloom full
To clasp, to wed and in sweet bond fuse
For Angels, Cherubims, men and women all
Bless anon, shower flowers on couple at ease.

A Sonnet on an unknown rascal

A Sonnet on an unknown rascal
-Ramesh Iyengar
( The dormitory room experience of a school teacher)

You the one, who often here stalks
By cursed hand doth loudly knocks
All the night in intervals, quick, short
Bangs the door, cause fright at heart
Not a moment lets me have my peace.
Can’t study, write, work or sleep with ease
Rush I in post-haste quick to the door
Lo! gone is he, from sight ran away far.
Rascal’s face unknown, name know I not
Yet, curses for his downfall, let him rot.
You, the one, if thee build a house
Or in thy fair maid’s sweet embrace
May you by all means lose erection
For, in this poet’s words, is there no correction.

A Sonnet on ‘ conjoined’ sisters

A Sonnet on ‘ conjoined’ sisters
- Ramesh Iyengar

[ school pals Miss. Thaslima and Miss. Priskilla ]

Ah well! bonny sisters blessing endowed
From which wond’rous womb dost thou descend?
Oft-seen spotted as Gemini stars forever
By human agency seldom torn asunder.
In classroom, dorm or corridor elsewhere
Never torn, parted, cleaved but, together.
Black as thy skins outwardly seem
Yet, in grace, virtue, the friendship gleam.
Art thou Siamese twins in full beam
Or ‘ by birth-conjoined ’ as medics claim?
In faith, creed in practice differ,
In amity, affection by nature’s confer.
Excel in learning, friendship pals sweet
Forever, forever fixed remain so concrete.

The poetry for Farewell Day

POETRY FOR FAREWELL DAY

Years here have passed by,
many a winter and spring rolled away
The honeyed days we had in here
in free mind and innocence fair.
Never are to return forth.
Say I this in full truth.

A sanctuary is to us
Our safe haven, secured campus

Yet, from it we part now
like the calf that leaves the cow,
As the cub severs from brave lion
nurtured full in its den

We thus take a breach.
To our alma mater make a valediction.
A farewell to Mother,
