I'm such a "prose" kind of person, it's not everyday that I find myself going "WOW" over a piece of poetry! A poem has to really "touch" me somewhere in order for me to appreciate it.
And one such poem, ("Poetry" in fact, for it's an insult to call something so beautiful as merely "a poem"!) that has managed to stand out in my mind for over 20 years now, is Subhadra Kumari Chauhan's "Mera Naya Bachpan"!
I recited this in the school elocution at the age of 10 or 11 (I don't remember exactly which year) and I fell in love with it the first time I read it! I'm still as much in love with it as I was then!
Found it on Google again...
