A Letter Too Old.

A letter too old,

With its cover torn,

Was in a nearly tattered condition in a school bag.

It was from a principal to a boy,

Congratulating him for his excellent performance in his term exams.

The letter remained in his bag, as a memory of his achievement.

For in the last four terms he was one of the lowest scoring students.

That was a truly sore point for him.

He had notched up his practice and steadily his marks increased.

That letter remained his prize forever.



A Good Friend.


A good friend,

Came in our way,

To the roads of journey and vacation.

We met often,

And he remained,

Nearly for the whole journey.

He had a vacation of his own.

Despite everything,

He remained a good friend.

He used to send us a letter every year.
