I Relish Sacred English Like a Water-Loving Fish (03/04/1999)

At last I have acquired an English dictionary,

From a shop selling books and stationery,

No longer my vocabulary will be stationary,

My English knowledge will turn extraordinary.


In my school, English language

Was never at all sadly in usage,

I resorted to Tamil for every message,

I possessed poor English knowledge.


Up to my studying eleventh standard,

I conversed not in English a single word,

In college life, my state turned awkward,

As, everywhere, only English was heard.


All the subjects were only in English,

I suffered agony due to mental anguish,

I scored in final year only forty six percentage,

But, that didn't cause to my hope any damage,

Now, exactly forty is my presently had age,

To write good English, I could just manage.


Whenever I try to write an English sentence,

I mix English knowledge with experience,

Upon my English talent, I have reliance,

I admire English language in strict silence.


O- Dearest English- Your twenty six letters,

Have created billions of wonderful writers,

If apt English words, tongue correctly utters,

Like that shining gold, the sentence glitters.


English is no longer to me now alien,

I watch it being spoken easily by million,

I manage well in English is my opinion.


English is infinite like the space,
