The Autumnal Celebration..~by Akshaya Kumar Das



The Autumnal Celebration..

Autumn knocking,
The month will be rocking ,

From a villager to a city dweller,
Festive moods everywhere,

The city of you readying with full gear,
Every by-lane will have a Goddess here,

Leaves turning into golden yellow,
The pandals glowing into golden mellow,

Cities pulling the crowd,
Cultural programmes soliciting in pride,

New clothes in every household,
Bengalis turning to culture mode,

Red bordered sarees with vermilion spray,
Submerge their divine soul’s to the secret pray,

Cymbals conches resounding the climate,
The blue sky smiling with clouds glistening white,

Children in absolute festive moods,
Parents failing to navigate their joyous moods,

In limitless atmosphere of The Goddess Durga,
They just surrender to the magic moods of the urge,

Celebration round the clock,
Gujus dancing dandiya with their folk,

An effigy of the Demon Ravana,
Put on firearm to burst into flames of fire weapon,

Prevail victory over the evil rule Ravana,
Since time immemorial the great celebration,

The Rule of Autumn for the season,
A crystal clear blue sky with patches of surfing clouds at the horizon,
