Summer Vacations

Joji Varghese Kuncheria Summer Vacations I looked forward to summer holidays, Free from school, to run away, to My maternal home amid paddy fields, Reachable only by boat those days. To play on snake boats in the lagoons, To go fishing around the back waters, And give the catch to nanny to be fried, And eat it all well before lunch time. We wait for the sun to go down a little, To be out again for a session of games, To cool it all down the river after a while, And to dash back home before sun set. Reaching home before the church bells, For the evening prayer that's long always, We pray for the vacation never to end, And not to go back soon to school. Bed time is a world of fantasy tales, With grandmama's cooked-up stories, Each day a new one from her store, And to sleep to the tune of her lullaby. *******
