Here is a famous poem of Bhawani Prasad Mishra Ji. There is not much tradition of storytelling in modern Hindi poetry, but this is an exception. The old and abandoned old forte that has now been taken over by the Nature, has a story to tell. I recall that Akashvani in 1950s or was it 1960s, had adapted this poem into a radio-drama that was superb and haunting. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
