AN ODE TO XAVIER RUTSA

Lolesenu Vitsu
Class 9
Little Flower Hr. Sec. School
Kohima

 

A favoured person of mine
But anonymous in sight
Adored by all,
Even when he was alive
Years of literacy work
Has paid its tribute to him
The sweat of his brow
Finally has taken a stow;
A deep sorrow on your departure
The desire of meeting you, Sir,
is brought to a halt.
May eternal rest be granted upon you
As you’d taken your leave.
