Summer solstice


Summer solstice again, sun at its bright,
At summit making longest day of light,
A lover’s date lingering till late night,
Leaving far behind looming wintry plight.

To us Indians blest with abundant sun,
Where summer’s a lasting boon from heaven,
Solstice of either kind is passing fun,
Nor longest day means a rare fortune won.

Nor is mild winter a melancholy
Of Polar lands that ever pallid be,
In summer do we head to climes hilly.
And seek cool lagoons, a lily at sea.

Nature would want men from plenitude draw the least,
And from less and less to look for a sumptuous feast!
_____________________________________________ ______________
Written on 22nd June, Summer Solstice Day. This is a peculiar
piece that uses a sonnet format with four rhymes in all.
All the four lines of each quatrain take the same rhyme.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
