• Summer Song
  •  The summer is long
  • Parched, dry and drought
  • Yet it has a song.
  • Song of longing
  • For a gentle sway of breeze
  • Cool gurgling streams.
  • Song of dry leaves
  • Twirling down from trees
  • Carrying hopes of new seeds.
  • Song of distant clouds
  • Flying sand from
  • Blinding desert storms.
  • Song of orange wasps
  • Trying to build
  • Empires in tiny nests.
  • Song of still air
  • Light with silence
  • Hard without care.
  • Song of the baked earth
  • Emptied of the old
  • For new rain to fill its core.
  • – Dola Dasgupta
