Chasing the moon, this afternoon

Dr. R. P. Singh


Chasing the moon along the rails
first in thoughts ,and in the vision next 
this May , afternoon grows  up to sunset .

You know it echoes so often 
the facts long last ,and foretold.
It winks across the time's  by lane
when with some late Victorian texts 
Time brings memories forth ...

The  narratives yawn ,
peeping  across  the shade ,
yes  this dark evening steals the grace 
that some days past ,crossing the sordid 
COVID  years has planned...
Moon ,you spare the days 
and come full grace ,
come full mirth 
of those placid days 
of thoughts ,of revelations 
of images  and all...

I saw moon hunt two days past ,
the jacket shows the marks 
and the wrinkles of time fade ,
Yes, the  red hot ,waffling widget on... 



Dr. R. P. Singh, Professor of English at the Department of English and Modern European Languages, University of Lucknow, Lucknow.
