The Old Man Sitting


Passing everyday through the plains,
I see a old man sitting,
Over the bench he sits,

With a stick in his hand and a ball on the other.
Know not what he thinks,
may be of some tragedy or may be some good memories.

A moment he sings, a moment he cries.

A moment he laughs thinking something nice.
And what's that ball for?
Is that his chilhood memory?

Or is it some history?
He speaks not a thing,

He greet not any being.

Moment later he rises up,
And in his pocket the ball he keeps,
Walking through the solitary road,
He vanishes like a lonely ship.
