When Wintry Winds Rage - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

No leaves left to blow,
O winds thy rage sounds hollow,
Look, the bare trees smile—
A toothless smile; not thy guile,
They shall again glow.

    What should be a sad poem for the leaves, you took it and did turn it around and made the wind a loser. This is what poetry is all about. This is what poetry can do.
    Good read.
