Lights of the thousands of stars
Don't seem enough for such a night
You miss the moon badly
Who can make the night bright.
Without proper transportation
Without supply of electricity.
Life here is so different
Deprived of city-like facility.
A moonless night of summer,
Is not a piece of cake
If you're going for a hike
Don't panic if you encounter a snake.
Among the sounds of toads and cockroaches,
When One sound appears different
Do you need your Grand'ma to confirm you
'This is the sound of a serpent.'
Authour's note: The poem is about my village in north Bihar, India. This is my experimental rhyming scheme where alternate lines rhyme in each stanza.
