Rookie - 15 Points (7TH OCTOBER 1951 / Trissur, Kerala State, India.)

F O L K D A N C E


The street was lighted,
With lighted bulbs in hand,
the group moved along
With singers, at the back
Of which danced the dancers
In tandem to the song
And music, clapping
Their hands, for a few
Long hours,
With colored dresses,
Enlightening the surroundings
Drummers beating
To the song, pipers
Blowing in melodious glory,
All came out to watch
The illuminated, enlighting
Folklore and dance
Which spoke of a love
which happened
Thousand odd years afore,
Giving the same old glory
Passed on for centuries.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
