This leaf; so complete in itself;

Is only part of a tree.

And this tree; so complete in itself;

Is only part of the mountain.

And the mountain runs down to the sea.

And the sea; so complete in itself;

Rests like a raindrop

On the hand of God.

Ruskin Bond’s Book of Verse brings together the poetry of one of India’s best-loved writers. This charming collector’s edition is a treasury of poems on love and nature; travel; humour and childhood; and will be a lasting source of delight to readers.
