The Clouds And The Sun

The Clouds And The Sun short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal

On a dull and dreary day
When the sky was overcast
With dark and dismal clouds
I sat feeling so despondent

Absence of warmth and sunshine
Slowed down the routine business
The day seemed longer than usual
As if time had come to stand still

And my spirits were low and depressed
Leaving me inert and bored
And feeling afraid if things would last like this
Devoid of all activities and cheer .

At that moment my mind and heart
Began chiding me in perfect unison
” How come you be such a pessimist
Knowing well the wise ways of Nature — ”

” Isn’t each night followed by a day
Each cold winter by warm spring air
Don’t clouds give way to the Sun in turn
And hot summer waves to cool rain showers ?”

”All are but parts of Nature’s calendar
Planned for benefit of all creatures
So why not welcome and praise each hue
That Nature fancies to paint us with ? ”

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .
