A Tribute To My Readers

A Tribute To My Readers

A Poem by Saumya
"

A writer is incomplete without the readers, so this is a short tribute to you all....

"
My dear readers,
I'm grateful to you all,
for being here...

Each time i write a poem,
i earnestly wait,
wait for your reviews,
because, they tell me the depth,
to which my poems are true..!

I never thought,
that I'd write,
but there's a story
a story, behind it,
full of insight,
that makes one smile.
which I'd like
to share with y'all
tonight...

When I was a kid
of twelfth grade,
it was the day, i think,
third or fourth of May,
I remember the day,
I remember the date,
it was the Moral Science
class on 5th of May,
My teacher told us
to write something,
on the topic, `When I'll bid Adieu`
While others wrote
one or two lines,
I was there
with four lines..!
she checked everyone's writing,
by her keen mind,
and intense understanding..
And when she came to me,
and read those four lines,
the situation, i feel was truly divine!

I  know not
what she saw in
those lines,
she came to me,
and urged me,
to complete that poem
By May nine...
the next day, i did it,
and later,
it got published in our
first school magazine,
for the first time..!

Everyone who read,
appreciated it a lot,
and encouraged me
to continue this
great work of mine,
In the coming time.

but all that happened,
was because of Her
my lovely teacher
that time,
who fell in love
with those four lines!

yes, my dear readers,
I'd really love to tell,
that,
if i write well today,
its entire credit goes to her.!!

Then i came here,
and wrote more poems,
and the result i think,
y'all have in front of you!


My dear readers,
i really cherish your presence,
in reading and reviewing my writings,
and i cordially thank you, and wish,
that, in future, you will be even
more supporting.



if i am a poem, you are my words.!
if i am a book, you are the pages.!
So, i request you, to always be
with me,
in this race of chaste,
as a book is empty, without pages,
and a poem, useless, without
words and phrases..!!

I wrote my first poem in 8 standard and it got published in school magazine of course it was in hindi, its really easier to find words to express the emotions in a language that you have not learnt but devoured.. Well i had read a lot books in library to understand the upper layer of this world as a kid. i had 3 teachers in hindi till class 10, after that, stream changed non medical..

And the thing is they(teacher) didn't care a s**t about my writing and me too didn't care about my writing, only thing a cared about at that time to impess my teacher and get numbers...... So i can't balme them... Its never to late, iam still a student, so i started to write as time passing hobby, i signed up for for writers cafe 8 days ago and now iam quite addicted...

Well nicely expressed emotion fellow writer , that made me recall my past..

"in this race of chaste,
as a book is empty, without pages,
and a poem, useless, without
words and phrases..!!"

Never thought of an empty page/book as chaste, but that's a perfect description. Your teacher was as excited to see someone go beyond the "minimum requirement" as she was to see the skill applied to the content. Lucky for us.....

Thank you for showing me the way to this poem, my friend, becuz it's nice to see the connection between this one & the other one I just reviewed, since it's "THE POEM" (from what I'm understanding) you're referring to in THIS poem! *smile*

It's so important to get an early review of your work that is encouraging. I remember my first college writing class, the teacher made me feel worthless & so I stopped writing for many years. I'm so glad you had the opposite experience in your younger life.

As for reviewing you, it's my pleasure. Your writing is good, but what makes it compelling is your THINKING & FEELING. You have unique ways of seeing the world & you inject so much of yourself into your poems, so we really get to know the essence of you, which is a very beautiful person (((HUGS)))

As one of your readers, I now feel quite special, Saumya … thank you immensely!

How insightful of your teacher to spot your potential skills as a poet in your four line verse, and to encourage you by posting it in the school's magazine for all to see, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sincerity in how your heart spoke to your readers in this piece.

I realize this is one of your earlier posts on here, but in reading it, there is much in poetical voice, form, word arrangement,punctuation, and presentation, etc; you will need to learn and practice before your skills as an accomplished poetess will be developed.

I think it would have been appropriate to post your four lines that you proudly speak of, that we can share and enjoy them, too.

I gave this a 70 for exuberance and sincerity, and deducted for the reasons stated.
I think I see that same bright potential your twelfth grade teacher did, Saumya … big smiles to you! ⁓ Richard

Your teacher was a special person.....and I am so pleased she asked you all to write that day. Otherwise you might never have persued your talent.
"if i am a poem, you are my words.!
if i am a book, you are the pages.!"

What a wonderful concept! You are an observer of life and that is why your poetry is so interesting.
Thank you for sharing your story and for the tribute. Lydi**

thank you for the lovely review Vani:) glad you loved this write:)
you have so much meaning in your words.
Is sweet how this one goes out to all your readers.
I give you much respect for that.
I don't really like it much only because it doesn't really sound like a poem, and i prefer poems that rhyme more.
Although as for if i look at it like a story i do like it.
Great write though thank you for sharing.
Keep writing :)
