Independence Day Parade - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

People dressed
In colorful attires
Stand eagerly
By the roadside.

Independence day
So precious in life
Has arrived this day
It's time to rejoice.

Marching bands
In rhythmic steps
Are coming this way
In the middle of the road.

Drums roar
Cymbals chime
Clarinets blow
Music everywhere.

Flags waving
In peoples' hands
At head of the bands
Flags wide as the road.

At front are banners
Of schools and towns
Social organizations
Of various kinds.

Confetti rains
From above somewhere
Children and elders
Cheer and cheer.

Entire space's
Filled with joy
Freedom's effects
Are sweet indeed.

Independence is
Right of all
Protecting it is
Our prime duty.

Live this life
With dignity and pride
Let others live
As freely as you.
