Autumn Of The Year 1988


When the harsh summer
Surrenders
To the charms of the gentle autumn,
Everything seems to be so beautiful…
The weather becomes so wonderful,
The soft breeze feels so good
The leaves
Rustle with a very soft tune,
The flowers
Flutter in a waltz,
The sparrows
Join me in humming my favorite song….
I forget all my daily tribulations,
My heart
Bursts and overflows with joy
And everything I say
Turns into a symphony of words
While I recall that wonderful day in autumn
Of 1988…

    Each and every word of the poem is filled with joy, beauty, amazement, songs and symphony. When the harshness of summers ebbs and warmth of autumn takes over, one is struck by the thought whether the autumn could last for ever along with the pleasures it brings with it? It was indeed a pleasure to have read the poem, Jasbirji. (Report) Reply

    I don't know why the autumn of 1988 was so important to you, but that is something personal. It's too hot nowadays and autumn is eagerly awaited. The poem is so beautiful that it helped in removing the pains of the hot summer at a place where there is no electricity for at least 8 hours during one day, yes three times a day we remain victim of energy shortage. Some times this duration is even more due to break downs. (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
