School had begun…

Standard

The drizzling of the winds on the glossy wall,

Marked the signs that rains had called.

With them came one more surprise

which all the students had cherished in disguise

 

The month of June had already arrived

With schools in India flocked in stride.

Making their way in those heavy showers

Parents took their *’Bachas’ with all their parental powers

 

Some walked with umbrellas

while some loved the showers,

some had their raincoats

while some like me tossed paper boats.

 

We reached school with all those efforts

meeting new faces and remembering old ones.

The striking of the bell and the start of our prayers

Making me realize, It was a sign, the School had begun..

Years went by with those memories

As I had moved in a new geography.

The month of August had incepted

with my school in US started as expected.

 

I didn’t find any those showers here

But was greeted with the sun shining over.

The pranks in school bus were like an act of kind

While here in the bus I entered with a strange feeling in mind

 

Entering the campus I entered the lecture hall

Unlike in India here things were huge and tall.

Arranging some sheets arrived our Professor

Spelling our names differently, we laughed at sir.

 

The session went on with no one paying attention

The talks of the class were never in unison.

Thinking this fact, my mind tossed and ran

Now I realized, The School had began !!
