DAVID AND JONATHON - Poem by DILS Debojyoti Sinha

- DILS Debojyoti Sinha -

(Published in The Scroll, the wall magazine of the
Department of English, Gauhati University in 1981)

Moving in vain and utter hopelessness
Lost the way and losing myself a man
Indulged in cheap pleasures; got no progress
Found myself a layman with a leman.

In such a scornful state I met you,
Like a blooming flower ever smiling
With a heap of knowledge and thoughts anew,
To my great ecstasy and strange feeling.

You showed me the way and where to be moved;
I heared and followed with a heart benign,
Though often I failed and unworthy proved
You forgave me with your sympathy divine.

Guide me for good in the life’s marathon
A wise David to a wayward Jonathon.
