India Gate

Standard

The drops pour
Drenching the stones
To washed radiance
And the monument
Stands tall
With prestine pride

The young at heart
Drawn to
The stretches of green
Juggling the balls
As they announce
Their strength
And spirits
The ease to play
And the confidence
Of control

The skies continue
To pour
Saluting the glory
And the valour
For those dances the flame
“Amar Jawan Jyoti’
For them, their love
Was precious
And life, a game!

As a silent spectator
I sit and watch
The hopes of future
The tales of the past
And deep in my heart
I pray
While kids play
May they imbibe
The essence of the place
To their lives
Be it not just a childhood memory-
“The India Gate” !
