Summer song

SHREEKUMAR VARMA

the bluest blue that comes to stay

a month or two, or maybe three,

that chases all the clouds away---

it's nature on her warming spree!

the master artist took his place---

white sheets four and colours more;

the first three go at rapid pace,

he takes a while for number four.

there's autumn, spring and winter first,

a pause before the brightest one:

his lips already parched with thirst,

he picks his brush and gets it done.

what fun, he grins, for summer's here!

Shreekumar Varma is a poet, writer and a playwright. He lives in Chennai.
