Subtle Hope

a poem by Abraham Oommen

Join with me for a chat dear
Sparkle the thoughts untanned
Hear my nonsense in full
Tell me where I erred

Sing with me a song of fury
Dance with me the horror of rhythm
Sleep with me with a doze of love!
And lull me to sleep with thy tender pat

Oh! its wonderful for the sweet dream
Delights me and soars my spirits to
Realms high in musical agony and throbs
Its time for me to dash into dark clouds!
