I remember those days of long summer
Oh, the joys of school summer vacation
Of playing hide and seek to endless hours
Pretending to slay the ferocious dragon
And to catch the notorious dacoit Ravan.
When all else played, at trees we looked up
In the hope to find the juiciest fruit mango
Now we looked down, mangos looked up.
Before I could satisfy my hunger with amigos
Were chased out by fuming gardener Rodrigo.
And still not giving up, seeking other means
To the neighbor’s fence we would climb over
Lurk in the shadows when all clear and clean
Obliged juicy fruits that calling us under cover
Less forbidding but exciting, if not any more.
Dr. Ram Mehta
