An old tribute to Seth

Sometimes I wonder if it were my fate,
to make my millions like the inimitable Seth.

He started off, with the Golden delight -

addressing next, the Sleepy tonight.

Onwards he went, with Beastly tales

making waves (and booming sales)

The best one yet, is his latest joy -

for I've just read, A Suitable Boy

The pursuit was long, taking ages

through sleepless nights, and 1400 pages

This time in prose, he unfolds his story

(but poetry fleets, his perennial glory)

He rekindled a fire, dying of late

so now it's me - a poet reincarnate!

Vishal Misra,  1993
