So longings

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in…

There all longings, longings?
 Wonderous, wonderous, so straight?
 Up to the thrilling hot!
 So the desired, oh desired!
 Somebody came seeking, seeking?
 All so heard, oh not to hear-
 All so taken, not to return,
 Longings, longings to caress, caress.
 All so ringing, ringing
 All so playing, playing
 Would you so caress, caress
 Hear oh, hear oh hear?
 So all respect, respect!
 Uproar, uproar so hear?
 As so stood oh happy happy!
 Longings so longings so loud oh came
 Not so self, filled, filled
 Not so turned, hard hard to swell
 There's there's an old old time-
 There's there's an old, old vessel
 There's there's a goblet-
 There's there's so gold oh precious!
