Summer Solstice - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

Play Poem Video

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.
