      Lurking behind the mountain’s peak the dawn dethrones Diana silently

      2.She slides with her star studded crown behind red rays veil coyly

      3.Riding on His majestic seven horsed golden chariot swiftly

      4.The Sun ushers unleashing the caged fragrances and melodies softly.

      5.The new monarch decrees to shed off the cosy comfy den

      6.And warm up to toil and furrow the newly seeded land

      7.The ascending day heats up with scorching fire and fury

      8.Compelling the toiling folks to seek shelter under the old Bunyan tree.

      9. Dusky way ward weary they rush to join family in mirth and marry

      10.Tipsy virgins call their lovers to dance under twiinking starry night

      11.Children are listening fairy tales with sleep laden eyes

      12.They too surrender to the luring call of dreamy nights.

      13.The crescent moon advances engulfing every scene to sight

      14. Calling them for a solitary walk on cold moist foggy way

      15.A stroll down the memory lane they recall old friends, lost love.and gone days

      16. It’s is devine design to rotate the Sun and the Moon not a victory or defeat

      17.To tell the world that nights to dream and days to fulfill a long cherished wish.

      Thanking You.
