A Tribute To The Chair—My Poem

All through the day and night,
You are always there in sight,
Standing firmly at your place,
With never ending grace,
To provide soothe and comfort,
Without showing any effort,
To relax the tired legs and feet,
And it’s a complete treat,
Many times on a busy day,
To feel reassured, you are there.



The humble chair listens,
The many tales that’s shared,
By people who seat there,
Men or women, young or old,
It doesn’t discriminate,
Between rich or poor,
People confide on the seat,
Thinking no one could hear,
But the modest chair listens,

As well as hides their fears,

And handles them with care.

The modest chair, provides us relaxation mentally as well as physically

Can you imagine a World without chairs?

How easily we overlook the importance of our seating place?
Whether it‘s your living room sofa, your dining chair, your study chair, the easy armchair, where you love to sit cozily.
And not to forget that big chair in your nearby park, or garden.
How often in a single day, we take that seat, to relax, to ponder, to study, to think, and so on.
Can you imagine a World without any chairs?
What will happen to the tired, and the exhausted men, and women, old, and young, rich, or poor?

We will be left with tired legs and feet.
Yes, the humble chair does not discriminate between rich and poor.

It provides rest to everyone who takes the seat.

And it relaxes us physically as well as mentally.

Chitrangada Sharan

How many times during a day, do you take a seat, to relax?

      How thoughtful. For me there is nothing like curling up in a comfy chair with a good absorbing book - and of course I sit on a chair to write!

      Thank you FlourishAnyway, for sharing your thoughts!

      How beautiful to have your cat around, while writing. And you are right, we do have a favourite chair in our homes.

      Thanks for your valuable comments!

      Thank you Mary Wickison, for sharing your thoughts!

      Yes, we do not even realise, how much we are dependent on our chairs. Perhaps when we remove them all from our rooms, then we begin to wonder, how much we need them.

      Thank you for the visit and comments!

      I love the idea of a chair hiding fears and handling them with care. I'll think about that when I next sit in my favourite chair!

      I like your poetic tribute to the chair. Now, I'll be sure to say thanks to mine. Quite original and interesting.

      Nice idea, Chitrangadaji. I have some Odes like that and a few Salutations too. I have a very funny one to my bath soap and one to 'pooh (toilet stuff)

      Anyway, very cute poem and so good of you to highlight the values of the chair. Nicely done!!

      Neat perspective. I often take a rest with a cat nearby and sometimes on my lap. I wouldn’t want a world without either chairs or cats. My favorite chair is an oversized office chair where I write from. One of my cats climbs on the back and oversees my computer work.

      I don't think many of us would opt for a chairless world. Many times throughout the day, I opt for a rest and take a seat. We hardly ever use our sofas, just chairs.

      I like how you express yourself in poetry with regard to the humble chair or bench. Nicely done!

      Cool writing. :-)

      If somebody ask me who is most supportive while it's rocking,

      my answer would be, my rocking chair. ;-)

      I love your creativity! Writers see a poem or a story in the most mundane of things. Well done!

      I would feel comfortable on the floor. Chairs are useful and this poem says so much about it. Lovely write here and I am glad I stopped by here.
