Students were asked to write short poems similar to ‘Fog’ by Carl Sandburg.
With the chocolates and ice-cream mode on
Picnics and water all day
With the anxiety when the holidays will end
It’s the holy season of summer
With candyfloss all over.
The clouds rise from the lake
And settle at the foot of the hills
The hills look at them
But cannot look at them for long
As the sun rises
And the clouds lift away.
It brings sneezes and shivers
Bear like creatures walking all around
Tea and cakes people have, sitting beside the fireplace
Red cheeks, red nose and a handkerchief in hand
The winters are the season of sleep and chocolate.
The sun jostling through the sky
Reaches the earth
Kick starts the day with tea and cheer
It stares into dark eyes which gleam
And look like fresh honey
It wakes up the buds and wishes ‘Morning, its sunny!’
The winter comes
Slowly creeping in
It builds up gradually
Like a wave
But then the sun comes out
And the cold crashes down.
The fire can destroy
The fire can build
Everyone has his own
Fate and will
The fire ignites and
Enlightens the soul.
Clouds are roaming cotton candies
Fluffy and moist
Mornings are a treat to watch
When they let the sun from heaven
Touchdown on the earth.
It’s October and the rain is still here
It started off with a peaceful drizzle
Making all around a misty landscape
But at times it turns violent
Causing destruction by raining 24X7.
It is a bright beautiful day
Birds sitting on the tree
with little warmth in the atmosphere
the sun shines so bright
giving most of its light
to the world in sight.
