Punishment in Kindergarten – Kamala Das


Today the world is a little more my own. 

No need to remember the pain 

A blue-frocked woman caused, throwing

Words at me like pots and pans, to drain 

That honey-coloured day of peace. 

‘Why don't you join the others, what 

A peculiar child you are!’ 


On the lawn, in clusters, sat my

schoolmates sipping 

Sugarcane, they turned and laughed; 

Children are funny things, they laugh 

In mirth at others' tears, I buried 

My face in the sun-warmed hedge 

And smelt the flowers and the pain. 


The words are muffled now, the laughing 

Faces only a blur. The years have

Sped along, stopping briefly

At beloved halts and moving 

Sadly on. My mind has found 

An adult peace. No need to remember 

That picnic day when I lay hidden

By a hedge, watching the steel-white sun

Standing lonely in the sky.
