“ON MY READING THE TRIP TRIP CHETEY”
On reading Trip Trip Chetery, I was floored,
And carried upon a swell of wonderment.
The smiles and idioms mightily roared,
And impact was savoury and mellifluent.
The mastery of the masterly penmanship,
The smoothly undulating lofty prose,
Amaze at every twist and turn to slip
In like the fragrance of a rose.
I think I am pernickety and fastidious.
But I was overwhelmed by excellence,
Of Trip Trip Chetey and its notedious
And unpremeditated exuberance.
Om Vidyarti (may his tribe increase)
To give us lovely pieces such as these.
