WORD STREAM (31) The Fragrance

       The Fragrance
**********************














   What gives most pleasuresome smell?
    Variety of the  flowers in the park?
    Precious scents, that dissolve in air?
    Or any  aroma, flashing like spark?


     First few rain-drops touch the earth,
     When summer sun is burning device,
      Comes pure sweet smell from the earth,
      Mother earth smiles,do we realise?


     Old books locked in the dark shelves-
     Do we take the pain to read, or just seeing,
     Dive into the ocean of deep knowledge,
     Feel a pleasant smell- history of our being ?


    What is the most innocent fragrance we feel?
   - From the body of an infant,sacred and pure,
     What happens to this sweet divine smell ?
    Where it goes-when infant becomes mature?
