Winter's Here!

a poem by Pushpalata Venugopalan, India

(a child’s view)

When the sun lazy shines and
Slumbers still when I rise
When it throws more shadows than light
Then I know winter’s here!

When the cold winds triumphant blow
And strike a thrill that chills the bone
When to wake from bed is oh such a chore!
Winter’s here then I know!

When the Sun, that winter’s guest,
fiery makes his depart,
When some birds of Sun’s faith
to his sunny lair depart,

And the remaining,
the land’s constant
In minor set up a tremulous echo
Winter’s here then I know!

When ice creams cold no parent would propose
Lest coughs and cold our companions become,
When hot drinks allure with inviting warmth
Winter’s here then I know!

When flowers lend their colours to sweaters and mufflers
When bruises hurt with a burning revenge
When the advent of summer seem the only cheer
Then I know winter’s here!
