A bloom for you
by Vir Singh
The spring is at its climax
Birds are singing with the music of winds
Celebrating the spring season.
Fresh snows of the Himalayas are melting,
Rivers and springs have swelled.
They’re set to quench the thirst
Of land and people far away –
In the Indo-Gangetic plains.
Oaks are laden with silvery leaves
Rhododendrons are wearing blood-red flowers
Pines are shedding their needles
And wearing new ones
Tufts of pine needles
Look like a pigtail of an African girl
Wild rose, creeping over trees in the forest,
Have sprouted into creamy flowers
As if galaxy of innumerable stars
Comes down to the wavy mountains!
Amidst the bounty of beauty.
This bloom of nature
Is dedicated to you.
Instilling your fragrance within
Conjuring your splendor,
The nature has burst into bloom.
This bloom is nature’s smile for you.
