Stairs at Tintagel Castle, in Cornwall, England‘Rows of Steps’ by Rajnish Mishra The Society November 8, 2017 Beauty, Poetry 4 Comments Row after row, steps rising from the river, Row after row, steps falling to the same, Rising, going westward, falling, coming – a game Words play on life; and life, a little later Shells the words all down, and leaves Just the strong impressions, firmly etched, Deeply carved, with colours true, fetched From the days of old, when life was lived. The game, when it’s over; whistles blown, Feet when tired come over the falling steps, Tracing back the same old worn out stone – Steps at the end of a summer-day-long run, Over them of a never-resting sun – Lead them gently riverward, down the steps.
