READ A POEM ON THE WORLD MUSIC DAY

 





 ''We will call Musical thought " declares Thomas Carlyle about poetry. Adhering  to his thoughts  On the world music day  today 21-6-22, let's read some poetry and feel the music.

''The peddler's caravan" by William Brighty Rands is here for you to read it once and sure to make you feel the music.

I wish I lived in a caravan,

With a horse to drive, like a peddler-man!

Where he comes from nobody knows,

Or where he goes to, but on he goes!


His caravan has windows two,

And  a chimney of tin, that the smoke comes through;

He has a wife, with a baby brown,

And they go riding from town to town.


Chairs to men, and delf to sell!

He clashes the basins like a bell;

Tea -trays, baskets ranged in order,

Plates, with alphabets round the border!


The roads are brown, and the sea is green,

But his house is like a bathing -machine;

The world is round, and he can ride,

Rumble and slash, to the other side!


With the peddler -man I should like to roam,

And write a book when I came home;

All the people would read my book,

Just like the Travels of captain cook !
