An Ode to Winter

Autumn left and allowed winter to set
The days get shorter, the nights lengthen
Long nights give the warmth of the cosy quilt.

Dawn lightens up with birds chirping
Oh! The refreshing morning
As if calling everyone to go outside.

I open the door to go to the garden
Dew sparkles on grass and leaves
The beauty of pearls spread all over the place
My heart gets joyous with the beautiful scene.

My garden gets full with colourful flowers
The roses, Chrysanthemum and marigolds
The beautiful garden takes away the breath.

O Indian winter, you are so kind and sweet
Giving the warmth of sun throughout the day
How I fear the winter in Europe
The very thought of it numbs my nerves
How they, they’re covered from head to toe
Take coffee after coffee to warm them up.

We are very fortunate to live here
It is always tolerable whether it’s winter, summer, or rain
I love you, winter, I adore you
You are always well come to make us cool.
