Adieu 2016

Adieu 2016 short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

One more fateful year
Is on its way to becoming history
Giving way to another train of events
Brought by the ever- moving wheel of Time .

Nice has it been to live and enjoy
Through most of the days gone by
They were filled with goodwill and cheer
Coming from every corner

In all humbleness , I thank you , my God
For granting this wonderful life to me
Undoubtedly , it’s a unique gift
Beautiful , priceless , and surely the best .

Though , joy and sorrow are , as we know
But integral parts of life
Celebrations of joy have been aplenty
But also saddening and painful partings .

And now , the year is bidding adieu
Leaving behind an unwritten message
That life has always been like this
And will continue to be likewise
A curious blend of joy and woe !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

Maybe, just maybe, love is not a forever thing you know? Maybe it is just an evening spent taking crowded trains to unknown stations figuring announcements in foreign languages and wandering walks through dilapidated bylanes full of squishy muck and
