Ode To An Unsung Hero

On 5th June 2018, my father's first death anniversary, I received an email from my father's cousin. He has written a tribute to him in verse:

Ode To An Unsung Hero

By Noble Jose

(athisaya.noble@gmail.com)

Solomon the wise an' Muthabaranam the nice
Gave you being as a second son so precious
The guileless Nathaniel —  the frail flower rose
Blossom'd to shed far and wide its fragrance.
Doting father and mother made you naughty,
Rebellious, boisterous, haughty in the comity
Of friends and foes, family and  filial fraternity
Till eternity subtly embrac'd  you in perpetuity.

Labour law, your forte could not be your harbour;
Managerial stint in CLS too triggered your anger;
Your angelic better half too couldn't see eye to eye
And the gap led you to be driven into recluse, why?
Far, far away from the sly madding crowd shrouded
Your wit and wisdom, in a prison home for the aged.
Burnt to ashes after your eyelids in death closed;
The sea washed away your ashes —  that's the end.

Adieu, Annan!  You are an unsung hero!  To live forever
Though no more — to be with His bosom for ever more.

Playful Poesy

My latest collection of verse has just been web-published at the nirmaldasan home page. Here is how it begins: 

Poetic Prose
(You have my word)

Think about this trilogy. First came Rocking Pegasus, in which my Muse was upon a rocking horse. And then came Literary Trivia & Curiosities, in which the rocking horse metamorphosed into a rocking chair. After many years, in February 2017, soars Playful Poesy with wings of wax.

Poetry Workbook

By Nirmaldasan

(nirmaldasan@hotmail.com)

INTRODUCTION

 I, Nirmaldasan, am a disciple of Dr. Nirmal Selvamony, from whom I still learn the principles of poetic composition. Over the years, I conducted poetry workshops in different institutions: Good Earth School, Sri Ramakrishna School, SRM University, Women’s Christian College and Bharathi Women’s College. I would love to conduct poetry workshops in other institutions too and help students tackle all the 28 exercises in this Poetry Workbook.

Prose Workbook

By Nirmaldasan

(nirmaldasan@hotmail.com)

Prose is composed of words, phrases, clauses, sentences and paragraphs. There are four functions of prose: narrative, informative, imperative and persuasive. In any prose passage, there is meaning and rhythm. When you read aloud a passage, you should enunciate each sound and pronounce each word clearly so that the listeners can grasp the meaning and the rhythm.
