(071) Summer In Kerala - Poem by Risha Ahmed (12 yrs)

The days are longer then nights
And everybody sweat
This is the hottest place on earth
Is on what I can bet
The heat drives you mad
The sun is so fierce
That I can feel my head
Beginning to pierce
The heat won’t leave us one second
It’s there indoors and outdoors
Even vases are shaking, tables are yelling
And screaming are the floors
The Ac’s and fans don’t work
At hot drinks nobody looks
Oh, how we miss those days when
Sitting under the trees we read books
Oh, how I miss winter days
But when it finally arrives, I cry
“Oh mummy I wish we had those days
When it was hot and dry! ”
