Mystery itself Sayeed Hossain

Masks on Pretty smiles on their faces, Where work is your identity Day and night are the same. Vehicle tells all stories What dies under the wheel, Every step to make money To end life pain. Necessity is expensive, Some rights are in wage. To sell is human All can...

Robert Frost Mending Wall

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall, That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it, And spills the upper boulders in the sun; And makes gaps even two can pass abreast. The work of hunters is another thing: I have come after them and made repair Where they have left not...

Painting A New Beginning -Maream Binte Mostafiz

Painting has always been received as a gateway to escape from stress and a peaceful way of bursting out emotion. Studies show that after painting or playing with color people feel recharged and refreshed. It is also true that many corporate companies provide coloring material to their brainstorming staff for...

Henry David Thoreau Prayer

Great God, I ask for no meaner pelf Than that I may not disappoint myself, That in my action I may soar as high As I can now discern with this clear eye. And next in value, which thy kindness lends, That I may greatly disappoint my friends, Howe’er they...

Allama Muhammad Iqbal A Longing

O Lord ! I have become weary of human assemblages! When the heart is sad no pleasure in assemblages can be I seek escape from tumult, my heart desires The silence which speech may ardently love! I vehemently desire silence, I strongly long that A small hut in the mountain’s...

Accounts Aminul (Ahmed Musa)

Towards the end of life You have come, look at the two eyes match! And how long does Robe pretend to be blind? You have run out of time After buying and selling at the market of life, You have to go to the real place! And how long does...

Walt Whitman -To Think of Time

To think of time—of all that retrospection! To think of to-day, and the ages continued henceforward! Have you guess’d you yourself would not continue? Have you dreaded these earth-beetles? Have you fear’d the future would be nothing to you? Is to-day nothing? Is the beginningless past nothing? If the future...

Lead Poem

Hafiz Ghazal 22 When you hear the lovers’ words, think them not a mistake You don’t recognize these words, the error must be your take. The here and hereafter cannot tame my spirit and soul Praise God for all the intrigue in my mind that is at stake. I know...

Ralph Waldo Emerson -The Snow Storm

Announced by all the trumpets of the sky Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields, Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven, And veils the farm-house at the garden’s end. The steed and traveller stopped, the courier’s feet Delayed, all...

Jalaluddin Rumi Stay Close, My Heart

Stay close, my heart, to the one who knows your ways; Come into the shade of the tree that allays has fresh flowers. Don’t stroll idly through the bazaar of the perfume-markers: Stay in the shop of the sugar-seller. If you don’t find true balance, anyone can deceive you; Anyone...

Intelligence or Ignorance Khalid Saifullah

Hearing a matter, Education rate is increasing. Where intelligence is like fuel in factory building. Educational system says, Our youth is enriching. What an amazing lie you say! And don`t think for god`s forgiving. The thing we`ve learnt, Our textbook is everything. By which we can shine, And as equal...

T S Eliot Stand on the highest Pavement

Stand on the highest pavement of the stair– Lean on a garden urn– Weave, weave the sunlight in your hair– Clasp your flowers to you with a pained surprise– Fling them to the ground and turn With a fugitive resentment in your eyes: But weave, weave the sunlight in your...

The Exterior -Kazi Falguni Eshita

A full beard? That’s a terrorist! A veil made her unsuitable for a job. An Empty pocket? He’s a trash bucket! He is a burden for his loved ones. A homemaker? Why, she’s useless! What’s the use of so much education? He’s short? Shame on him He’s got nothing to...

Walt Whitman Give Me The Splendid Silent Sun

GIVE me the splendid silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling, Give me autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard, Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows, Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape, Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching...

Allama Muhammad Iqbal- The Painful Wail

Consumed with grief I am, I get relief in no way O circumambient waters of the Ganges drown me Our land foments excessive mutual enmity What unity! Our closeness harbors separation Enmity instead of sincerity is outrageous Enmity among the same barn’s grains is outrageous If the brotherly breeze has...
