The Blue Sky - Poem by Akshat Seth

I gaze and I wonder,
Just how quickly
The ice breaks
And my heart melts when,
I see the blue sky.

The blue sky that sends the warmth down my spine
Revives in all their glory, those wishes and dreams of mine
And I crave to bloom and I crave to blossom,
As I see the blue sky bath in sunshine.

The blue sky is,
Like the endless fountain of hope in my heart.
Indeed like the fountain that sometimes, T
Rushes with ecstasy, and sometimes,
Trickles desperately through the ice of despair;
The blue sky too,
Sometimes appears in all its glory surrounded by the greenest of hill-tops a an
with the sun, the crowning jewel
And sometimes struggles to find its way among the overpowering mist.

The white clouds float like the swans in lakes
The birds sing the carols to the dancing snow flakes
The blue sky is kissed by the blessed Christmas air,
And smiles upon the kids gathered round the Christmas cakes.

O thou unfortunate city-dwellers!
Do not breathe and spread the poison.
Do not choke thy imaginations
Do not bang your heads upon concrete
Wake up
Stand up
And cry out

' We want the blue sky back! '
