Memory, a diary-win

A Festival celebrations vacation was on
And a pleasure to go swimming every morn
With friends to the open Arabian sea.
Noticed a war-ship anchored onto the sea.

Hey, buddy, let’s go up to the ship there
And let’s see who comes first to the shore.
As we were about to approach the ship 
Saw some soldiers pointing guns at us.

Fled like a frightened fish seeking the shore
Forgetting who reached first and who the last.
A word went round the town as of caution
As it was the time of the Second World War.

Nothing happened for the next few days
And the ship had gone one fine morning.
But we learnt the lesson of how to swim 
Against the tide and also with the tide.

I carry about with me this diary as a treasure
As the lasting perfume, not as a past pleasure

    Dr. Ram, I enjoyed the read, and am happy to hear that the soldiers spared you & buddy to live on and write for us. ;-)

    Purloined treasure written on the heart! A nice, didactic object lesson. Until we have learned to swim against the tide, we cannot fully appreciate the blessings that we have accumulated. Enjoyed your trip down memory lane.
