Teach me Simple

Harish Mamgain is passionate about writing. He loves poetry.


This is my eighth alphabet poem. Any matter, any subject, can be explained in an easy way and in simple words. Why do we make a jargon of everything, be it history, be it law, music or philosophy for that matter. There is nothing which cannot be taught in an interesting, easy, and pleasing manner. This poem is aimed at conveying a message of making things simpler and coherent as far as possible. I have included two words in this poem : Xilinous ( resembles or feels like cotton ) and Zaftig ( a full shaped figure ). Like a zaftig, having a ravishing figure, our words must attract the listeners instantly.

Teach me Simple

Any bit complex
divulge effectively
Highly inflated
Jumbled knowledge
Looks meaningless
Not obvious
Quickly repels sucks
Try using vocabulary
With xilinous yarn

Hi Ruby, simplicity is not so easy to don in this much troubled world. Even Christ has extolled this virtue. People like a simple way and simple words. Thanks for your kind visit and words.

Thank you Chitrangada Sharan, glad you liked this tiny poem. In times gone by, people used to create such beautiful and simple folk songs out of just mundane things. Simplicity in deeds and words wins hearts easily.

Interesting and well done poem. I liked your introduction.

Life is so simple, if we choose it that way. Why to complicate it, unnecessarily?

Thanks for sharing.
