Those were the "Days"

This inquisitive fellow here serves an inclination towards reading, writing, exploring new things and much more....


Those were the days

When life was all about

Elfish glees

Murdering the ( people's) ears

With clamour & shrieks...

Those were the days

A panicle of the

Hurly-burly of school life

When homeworks & studies

Were the only strife...

Those were the days

When life was confined to

Mere thoughts of foolishness

Mine being to monitor

The journey of Miss Eraseress

( Oh..!! my habit of assigning

Names to my stuffs..)

Well, that was a task

Which I could never effectuate

As Miss Eraseress

Always used to evade...

Those were the days

When life wasn't

Strewn with puzzles

All it encompassed

Was inanity & giggles...

Those were the days

Of innocent eyes

Evincing the truth

& bearing no lies...

Those were the days

When these unblemished eyes

Built castles in the air

Then, even these will-o-the-wisps

Seemed to be viable...

But these are the days

When these figment of imaginations

Seem to be inexpedient

& has an apparent lack of passions...

Well....all these silly thoughts are not that silly, I suppose....And since I was in a school inhabited only by boys...she( Miss Eraseress) was in a high demand ! LOL !! :)....Well these memories...they really are beautiful...and we certainly find an abode of peace in them....and as the saying goes....there's no age to have a happy childhood...we can actually bring our "elfish glees" back from lost time......And I am also glad to find myself in a person other than me... :)

Yeah..!! I have got a box full of sweet n soury memories to cherish.... :) ... And I believe, you might be having too... & ... Uff..!! Miss Eraseress...

Well I had thought that perhaps I am the only person having such a silly thought.... But glad to find one having similar craving (to see her funeral)....

"Bring them back", I whisper in silent prays,

Those glimmering eyes and happy days,

But you know these days aren't worse

Because all you need is beautiful memories to rehearse !!

......Now that you mention , I remember that I never saw "Miss Eraseress' " funeral... she always used to get lost before her "death".....well....the poem is..... ****...
