On Vacation

a poem by Mahendra

Oh! What a joyful vacation!
Mirthful days appear only on this occasion.
Summer is indeed full of leisure
And waking late- a kind of pleasure;
No homework, no tuition,
Indeed a great pleasure from tension.
Oh! What a carefree vacation!
A lot of time to play.
All through the day.
When the sun becomes an obstacle to play,
Comics and fairy tales take its place.
Merrily, O’ merrily time passes,
Alas! Vacation is fast coming to an end!
Once again children’s face are shrouded in gloom,
And they resume the school life for another year.
