September


Only in West, March heralds the Spring.
Let me sing to this month of September:

Here this month in India, dragonflies crowd
Green leaf-tops of some acacia trees;

Butterflies then are a-plenty this time
Wave-twisting their way, circling each other:

To eat and mate being their vocation:
Of course, that is our awareness at work.

That we derive reckless joy watching them
Is not known to them – that is what I think!

Monsoon magic descends this month too with
Rain-clouds, not reflected down in glistening patches:

Making me swear that breezy September
I love best in Mumbai, my belov’d City.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
