Ballad On An Autumn - Poem by Sameer Agnihotri

The reign of winter is over, fighting a lost battle;
Time is over, thou shalt rule next year;
You accept or deny, adieu;
Now your mate “autumn” reign begins;
Now the earth will cover with endless hues;
Leaf fall from trees as lifeless corpse falls;
Red, blue, yellow, pink, brown and others collected creating a grand painting of nature.
Trees bare, leaves dead, weather moderate, pleasant mood for lovers;
On a distant park, lovers sitting, embracing each other; leafs falling celebrates their victory, birds free they are, entering into new era of life.
Seeds free from all barriers, flying, and landing;
Trees are bare, not a single leaf;
Appeared lifeless, but hidden within is a lust for reborn, with attire new.
Roads covered with layers of leaf, as a million corpseslying on ground, happy they are, victory they are celebrating;
Sunset is more beautiful than ever, colors falling from sky, a grand canvas by designer Grand.
Every scene is a story in itself; fauna celebrates with voices of different kind;
Jungle now is a concert, no competition yet;
Every being is winner, no game of win or lose, only celebration going on;
Genre of music is unknown but soothing in every sense,
Nature celebrates its new year not one day, but for months.
Three months of autumn fills the earth with mirth and joy assuring happy future.
Cleans leaves are clean clothes,
Old decayed ones are sleeping within their grave,
Seeds buried, come to surface and Eden reborn;
Butterflies everywhere, forming living rainbow.
Autumn creates heaven on this mortal world, though time little it stays, but inspiration is gives enough to wait for next autumn, and message eternal “circle of life continues”.
