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…

    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

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
