Read Poem: Delayed Death, by Sujoy Bhattacharya

Delayed Death
Hurry up! Come sharp !
The sun is ready to rise up.
Flowers in the garden have taken dew bath and wait for blooming!
Drowsy stars can’t keep their eyes open any more !
Birds are restless in nests for swimming in the barren sky .
Ripples of rivers are awfully eager to caress sun rays !
Flippant wind rests helplessly for tidal waves to kiss the thirsty shores .
Tired night birds rub their sleepy eyes in despair !
Hens are ready to sing the psalm to greet morning anew !
Why the night makes delay to depart – a serious law – break in the nature’s school !
At long last the bashful night dies behind the glowing wall of the day !
She was making courtship with the sleeping Earth!
