Celebrating Leap Year
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick
Bookmark and Share
 

Once in four years,

even the sun forgot to set alarm

and rose early

only to disturb the lovers

and the kids alike…

 

One extra day,

Twenty four hours on the beach,

who wants to ‘save nine’

all forgot to ‘stitch in time…’

 

For the full one day

the child was stuck to mother’s warm lap,

another day to play hide-and-seek

and to rejoice, laugh and clap

 

The birds chirped many more songs

and in joy flew extra miles,

young girls had extra hours in front of the mirror

to view and review their sensuous styles

 

The hawkers pushed their carts one day more,

the farmers toiled hard in the field,

extra booties the realtors earned

and workers sat in the sun tall houses to build.

 

Ever at the receiving end

the men folk carried extra provisions home,

drove more, were tired,

yet no respite from usual ‘homely’ storm!
