Two Mongooses

The clumsy beauties come knitted to the yard,
Slithering on the dewy glassy grass,
As usual.
Two mongooses in natty brown coats
Are looking for the fare scrap, if any thrown out.
The dawn window creaks as it opens its eye,
And Master Babu darts out to enact
His typical character with stones.

Forgiveness is their emblem, the mongooses
Return in the dawns, making Babu busy.
As these brown emperors reign among shrubs,
Serpents keep miles away: the brown saviours.
But Babu stoops to the pelting raptures,
Then the mongooses retreat into the chinks.
Yet, their presence is felt in the intermittent shriek.

The wild plants nod and one mongoose comes without
Its mate this dawn, "Where is the other?”.

Babu dashes out, but picks not stones up.
Every hole and every nook in and out the yard,
Master Babu seeks on.But he returns in fatigue,
Scuffling his shoes on the back of despair.
Next days also, he seeks the missed like a man.

Thus he seeks and grows…………………….

    Delightful, beautiful poem. I can picture everything in it. I lived in India in childhood and had a pet mongoose. It was so affectionate and kept the snakes at bay; a wonderful pet.

    Dear Hinsha,in many dictionaries plural of mongoose is mongooses.One dictionary says that the word mongoose is derived from the Marathi(Indian language) word mangus and its plural is formed by adding s in the end.I have written about typical Indian mongoose.Thanks a lot for appreciating my poem.Luv.Fabiyas
