( MISTER JUSTICE SH’H D„N MAR£śM )
This short poem is a tribute to the qualities of the head and heart of an eminent personality of the Indian sub-continent.
O Hum«yėn ! your life was full of warmth
Your spark was an assembly-enlightening lamp
Though your earthly body was slim and weak
Your elegant disposition was bright like a star
How fearless a heart in this frail body was
A universal flame in this handful of dust was!
But the intelligent heart was not at all afraid of death
In nights silence there is nothing except morrows affairs!
The imprudent ones consider death is the end of life
This apparent evening of life is the morning of perpetual life!
