⋅ 8 December 2011


My muse when I looked at the calendar and realized that very soon this year will come to an end...

fades silently
into the distant past.

stealthily tiptoes
to the hazy horizon.

takes a peek
from beyond the horizon.

And each bids
a graceful farewell
to one another.

Just the way 2010
bid farewell to 2011
and 2011 will do so to 2012.

  • A nostalgic farewell to 2011 ! May the New Year bring peace on earth and goodwill among all of us ! Thank you for your patience & your encouraging comments on my 'Story of English -Part Three' ! You are right Gita , it gives me great satisfaction since no one in the world has written this in Verse ! Hope it doesn't get plagiarised ; hope to publish it after I complete it next year ! Best wishes for the Christmas & the New Year , -Raj 9 Dec 2011 by
