Summers, poetry by Vandana Saxena at
Raimond Klavins



written by: Vandana Saxena



Just a few decades ago
When I was young and naïve
Summer was longed for
It was a season to dive

In dirty pools formed in colossal tubs
Neither chlorinated nor paid
Soaking the cools, with my friends
for hours I played

The long days at school
Just before the summer break
Expended under the ceiling fan
Which aired of its local make

The holidays were meant to travel
To spend weeks at Granny’s place
Where I and my cousins
Grew impish at a steady pace

Nights were spent on the terrace
Under the low bent starry skies
And the summer breeze caressed
As we slept on mattresses laid inline

No air-conditioners, no refrigerators
Air and water were free of pollution
When lime juice was a real refresher
Summers came with simple solutions!
