A Pedant's Finger
- Bipul Kalita
Oft I meet 
a traditional pedant 
who won’t let you ink 
in heart’s frames
what you believe 
to be the best structures
for expressions
of your refined minds.
 
Language of hearts
follows no rule 
in pouring out feelings
full of thoughtful emotions.
 
A pedant’s finger
digs me
to seek 
treasures of errors
in drops of tears
and sighs of fears
to see 
if determiners 
and punctuation
decorate them.....
 
I love him
for guarding the language
I teach 
I pity him 
for mistaking poetry for prose.
