Kamala Das Poems
- My Grandmother's House
There is a house now far away where once
I received love....... That woman died,
The house withdrew into silence, snakes moved
Among books, I was then too young...
- An Introduction
I don't know politics but I know the names
Of those in power, and can repeat them like
Days of week, or names of months, beginning with Nehru.
I amIndian, very brown, born inMalabar,...
At the dresser.
Pale fingers over mirror-fields
- Punishment In Kindergarten

Words at me like pots and pans, to drain...
It smelt of new rains and of tender
Shoots of plants- and its warmth was the warmth
Of earth groping for roots... even my
Soul, I thought, must send its roots somewhere...
