Unpublished Work of Great Poet NKV Blake

When people hear about the word "unpublished", the first thing they want to know is if it is "authentic". So I have no other option but to publish some parts of conversations I had with the great poet.... Mind you, I would never want to publish that, but I am helpless here, you see.

Let me clarify few things here. First thing first. These are unpublished poems, that doesn't mean there are other "published" ones. :-D He is claiming to publish them soon, but lets not have high hopes. He is too busy with "other More important" things for a time being.

Ummm, I forgot about the second thing. LOL.

Ok, so here you go. The first one is,

Today

In mornings calm, I act aloud
and feel my spirit soar

In evenings tired, I look straight back
and feel wonderful evermore

Such is my life, careless and free
and I hold nothing for tomorrow.

But spend all that I can today
and when the need arises, I borrow.

I liked this one for the sheer simplicity of the words. It makes one think that NKV is a simple person of a modest nature (which he is not IMNSHO, he is lil' evil). Don't blame me for my comments,

me: it really explains your case

me: I remember you had just 50 bucks..... You have to borrow.
me: LOL

NKV: :)


Second one is a quick impromptu...

Books and bats,
sticks and hats,
tapes and songs,
clothes all wrong,
in the boys house.

Flowers and dresses,
shoes and tresses,
perfume and paint,
enough to make you faint,
in the girls house.

And this is for the sake of authenticity.

me: LOL

NKV: I take that as a compliment?

me: tresses are also found in nkv's house

me: and I saw a bottle of old spice too.

NKV: Well.. I'm an exception. :)

NKV: I'm the poet here.
NKV: So I'm not counted. ;)

me: :-P


I tell you, it's fun to read his poems (as a first critic). :-)

You should have added comps , laptops , cd's , dvd's , floppies (5 3/4 and 3 1/2) , iPods's , pda's ... man you missed all the important things in life for bats and hats (and why hats ? i thought that was a girlie thing *yuck*) !!! Is this nkv 'only' ? :D

Nice poems man - keep it flowing.
Though next time I would prefer reading it in a book or atleast in your blog - not bootlegged versions from reviewers >:)

I've got to thank you V for the initial public exposure. The reception is good. I think I'll post my stuff now. :)

V said...

LOL.

It should be called IPO (not Initial-Public-Offer but Initial-Public-Overexposure). To be honest I didn't mean to do this. I just wanted it to be "you-heard-it-here-first". But I am happy to hear from all the people.

BTW, Exposure or overexposure you should publish your poems in any case.

First up, I have created three profiles on eblogger to have an id while I type a comment, and I've forgotten all the passwords.

Secondly, NKV Blake sounds neat :P.

Thirdly, was looking fwd to meeting you, but couldn't, so will look you up when I come to where you are, if I do or the next time you get here.

Fourthly, yep, like I said, NKV Blakomundo Wordsworth should stop his fishing-for-complimentsgiri and post some of his poems up.

Fifthly, hello there, small tiger !!

Maddie/Ewe/Beatrice Jezebel Parvati :D.

Yo V, I'm back! (-; but what about your posts??? (-:

daku said...

i am led to believe that there are no longer tresses in NKV's house (at least NOT on NKV ... possibly still on poor and ol' Aadis!!!) ... (-;
anyways, V, you were asking for blog posts and i made a few, and i am still waiting for yours!!!!!!!!

V said...

Hmmm, looks like I am not able to post comments.
