My mind transports to those Memories,

That will always be a part of my Life.

Childhood adolescence and teenage.

Reading Shelly, Byron, Keats, Milton.


But one poem that stands out in my mind;

"The Psalms of life" by H W Longfellow.

Took my breath away with its sheer  lyrical beauty.

It inspired me to be a poet.


Each line was a rain drop reflecting myriad colours of Life.

From that moment in time, My life changed,

Every aspect of life had a different meaning.

All those years have passed to be memories of a life time.


The poetry, the meaning, the message in each line.

Awoke the poet in me, my life was not the

Same.

And now in the mellowed years of my life.


"The Psalms of Life" remains etched in   my memory.

 It imparts a message on life, that one

 Should follow always in life.
