Walt Whitman Germs

Forms, qualities, lives, humanity, language, thoughts, The ones known, and the ones unknown, the ones on the stars, The stars themselves, some shaped, others unshaped, Wonders as of those countries, the soil, trees, cities, inhabitants, whatever they may be, Splendid suns, the moons and rings, the countless combinations and effects,...

Jalaluddin Rumi A New Rule

Ted Hughes -The Seven Sorrows

Ted Hughes -The Seven Sorrows

The first sorrow of autumn Is the slow goodbye Of the garden who stands so long in the evening- A brown poppy head, The stalk of a lily, And still cannot go. The second sorrow Is the empty feet Of a pheasant who hangs from a hook with his brothers....

Henry David Thoreau- The Inward Morning

Packed in my mind lie all the clothes Which outward nature wears, And in its fashion’s hourly change It all things else repairs. In vain I look for change abroad, And can no difference find, Till some new ray of peace uncalled Illumes my inmost mind. What is it gilds...

Allama Muhammad Iqbal- Death Of The Ego

Devoid the west of inner light, Her soul is struck with deadly blight : The loss of self has made the East A leper, for germs befitting feast. The Arabs have lost their former zeal, Their souls are shrunk, they can not feel : Iraq and Persia are bereft Of...

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...

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)

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...

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...
