Spring And Autumn


Today the night seems to be a burden
In a mood of bitter reflection
Troubled by an unknown venture
And bewildered by nature of ‘Nature’
I’m unable to make out
What is spring and what is autumn?

I had heard that spring is one
That everyone desires the most
That brings the happiness in one’s life
That symbolizes beauty and love in its purest form
Never leaving a man devoid of what he wishes
But compels me to think- is it really so?

How can we expect from
A season-so changing and so deceiving
Lasting for few months and days
Leaving us for final catastrophe
If the end is utter frustration
Let us welcome Autumn season

Thrilling people with altered vision
Adieu spring! Welcome autumn
So terrific and so challenging
Never ending always beginning
Providing keys for tasting others
You are the one we can trust better

I like you for you show us the mirror
Trying to keep us away from error
Preparing us for that final fight
Full of darkness without light
The life can become heaven for all
If they wait for you instead spring at all

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
