WORK AND WORD

'Why looked sad sister dear ? Won't you tell me its cause?
Seen you wool-gathering with eyes downcast often than not
Murmur while left alone, or turn mute in company sans cause
Won't you unfold to me," said the WORD TO WORK "your heart".

Said then the WORK TO WORD, "Hear me dear pretty 
You don't know for certain how ashamed I am of my emptiness 
When I see your sprightliness, despite wielding power mighty 
Trust, your very sight makes me conscious of my nothingness.

Aren't you loquacious and move about like a nomad ceaseless 
And directing in tones resonant set my wheels in motion 
Why me alone, you make big and small engage themselves endless 
Oh ! your gift of gab ever commands instant commendation".

"Blundered you then out and out my sweetest darling 
Your compliment, listen, carries neither weight, nor merit 
Sorry, your over-estimation of my part is neatly misleading 
And ended in robbing your mind of its poise and wit.

No dear no, your underestimation alone has undermined the worth 
Know you not - 'No word - no work', when life feels dearth of mirth 
You are the vehicle of thought and the theory of every practice 
By inhabiting me, you make me cheerful always in practice.

Tell me, aren't you donning thought with myriad charms and strength  
And endowing purpose its due tenacity; will power, all its strength? 
Who then takes credit of clarity to vision and firmness to conviction 
How could thought get over pitfalls, if not armed with right diction?

Haven't you heard people say, "Work sprouts from the fertile soil of word 
And thought takes off every time, only when fully draped in right word, 
Thought without action, you know ends only in abortion, and action 
Then neither breathes, nor serves any purpose sans thy sanction.

I concur not, nor like to see you hereafter in that gloomy mood
To be true, I feel damnably poor, when I see you engaged in any mood"
Their compliment mutual and confessions sweet soaked in humility
When went on, I slipped into nap benumbed at their life of sublimity
