O Summer

The rustling wind nudged the leaves

Dried and fallen, stirring slowly

The swing moved, the rope swayed

And a thousand moments came rushing back

My feet fly, back in time

And land in those summery days

Sun-rays filtering through the leaves

Laughter filling the world around

Happy feet pushing the swing

Some more happy feet dangling

Egging on to swing higher and higher

Five stones, flying in the air

Amid the giggles, caught by ready hands

Not a care in the world, we played

Till the sun burnt itself out

The dusk fell but not the spirit

A few morsels and there we went

Running again, amid the flickering lights

A drop of water brings me back

From that Summer to this Fall

My fingers roll the drop around

Many such drops fall and rest

On the tender threads of my dreams

And then, gently roll out of my eyes

O Summer, come back again

With those swings and laughter

With that wind and five stones

With those happy feet and smiles

O Summer, come back again……………

    Very nice Pritesh. Something from you after such a long time!
    For me summer brings in memories of exams. The summer vacations filled with drawing in childhood, and reading novels in the growing years.
