Poetry book in English
Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink in the wild air. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Summers remind me of vacations. Beaches and coconuts. Nani’s house and mangoes. The taste of Glucose in water and the smell of talc. Lazy hot afternoons where even the stray dogs find a spot in the shadows of a tree and don’t waste energy in running behind the passing cars.
By nighttime, everyone is so exhausted that they melt in a puddle. Playing cards, taking their 5th shower of the day, and battling with the endless swarms of mosquitoes. Cousins traumatising me for life with their ghost stories on the terrace and sleeping under the stars. We hope this poetry book reminds you of all this and more. This book is a collection of poems from all over India. Hence, it aims to bring a little sadness, some happiness and lots of good poems to you.
The feeling of summer is more than just a season. It’s a feeling of nostalgia, of memories that linger long after the heat has dissipated. It’s a reminder of childhood, of carefree days spent running through the sprinkler. As well as chasing after the ice cream truck, and of staying up late watching the stars.
This poetry book captures the essence of summer in India. For instance, it brings together poets from all corners of the country to celebrate the season in all its glory. From the bustling streets of Mumbai to the serene backwaters of Kerala. Thus, these poems paint a vivid picture of what it means to experience summer in India.
As you read through the pages of this book, you’ll be transported to different scenes. For example, scenes of lazy afternoons spent lounging in the shade, sipping on a cold drink, and watching the world go by. You’ll feel the sand between your toes. And the sun on your skin as you bask in the warmth of these heartfelt poems.
But summer isn’t just about relaxation and leisure. However, it’s also a time of growth and change. And also, a time to reflect on the past and look forward to the future.
Let these poems transport you to a place of sun, sea, and wild air. And embrace the wonder of summertime in India.
