Holi: Indian Festival of Colours 28-29 March
POETRY FORMAT, 29 Mar 2021
Is it too cold at this time of the Year
Do not worry; the winter season is all but over
This is the day of Full Moon
This is the day of the Indian festival Holi
We have waited for this Day for a year
Can’t we wait a little bit longer
How do we celebrate this Day
We play with water and colours
The colours come from various flowers
The water will not feel too cold
But it will add to the fun
When we pour a bucketful on you
And you will try to run
But where will you run
There are buckets of water everywhere
So don’t go here and there
Forget your worries and enjoy the fun
I send you my greetings for a happy Holi Day
Cannot send you any bucket of water from here
But flowers will add to the festivities
And give you happiness, fun and cheer
