It's Winter, Here Again! - Poem by Jameel Ahmed Ansari

She thrilled us before she left last year
With a promise to be back again,
Lovely were the moments she took with her
But she vowed to return 'em once again.

The sun was trying to replace her,
Her efforts to resist went in vain.
The sun shone bright, while the sky became clear
Winter now, was totally out of frame.

The sun came and blazed away
The soaring heat brought a furore again,
All we were left, but to face the summer's foray
Sweat, Stroke and tiredness were here again.

The rains have fought hard, to keep the sun at bay
‘Hide n Seek’, the clouds have played time n again.
The seasonal harvests, have left the fields full of hay
As the degrees decrease, winter seems imminent

The days have shortened while nights have increased
New vegetables and fruits have come again
The AC's have flipped while fans have ceased
Clearly the winter is here again

The monkey caps and the long coats,
The leather jackets and the thick quilts.
The woolen shawls and the lengthy mufflers,
They are all ready to greet the winter again.

As yet another year nears its end,
Let’s cherish d lovely moments, that we have spent.
Let’s do away with grief and pain we have underwent
Let’s start all over again coz it’s winter here again.
