THE Banyan tree



3. THE BANYAN TREE-DR.KGB

During the last monsoon,
Fell the banyan tree,
As old as the space eternal
Consigned to it free,
Making the ‘Banyan Junction'
Innominate;
Rather destitute!

It became punishing
For the transport bus;
With out signal of the tree;
It can't stop;
Also for the wind,
To flute an' fiddle
Without its
Quivering leaves!

For the People,
They lost the love,
Shadow an' care;
For the bird its nest;
Me the sanctum;
And a fresh breath;
My zest an' quest-
During this spells
Dishonest!

Yesterday I could see;
A scalping banyan;
Exactly planted
At the junction;
To perpetuate
The Time!
Also the mortal name!
