A Bit of Solace: Three Poems (Mohd. Rashid and Ibrahim Quadri)

| Mohd. Rashid

Tried to talk me
when heard about me
She, the friendship- loving girl!
Innocent I was! when she
Gave me a lollipop of SMS
Being in greed I welcome it.
An SMS from a strange number!
Desirous was I of knowing, then,
Where was from appeared when.
I continued trying, many times
Semester to semester
month to month….
Even New Year had passed.
But; unable to be replied.
No more query, /no more persuasion,
Nor I found the reason behind.
A cruel nature girl, I think for her
Who disappeared from life
Making me a poet or a writer.

| Ibrahim Quadri

The beautiful morning
And the floral awakening
To inspire my goal
It is the M.M. Hall

The birds are fluttering
Peafowls are screaming
They refresh my soul
It is the M.M. Hall

Mosque, the pure and hallowed
For me, the divine abode
Where lives Sir Syed’s soul
It is the M.M. Hall

Any weather, no matter!
Be it spring, summer or winter
Always rejoicing for all
It is the M.M. Hall
