There was anticipation in air
The trees , smeared in heat
Waited eagerly in reverence
The ground , as thirsty as Tantalus
Was muttering inaudible prayers.
Not a single ripple in the stream
The earth stood still .
The sky , no more an azure one
The cardinal colour , as if
Ready to witness , that first sin
Committed by our eternal parents
And , then She came ,
Neither coy nor coquettish
Her first bite and lo !
They surrendered to it
That powerful , poignant
Emotion which conquered all.
The earth smiled , the wind chimed
Rainbow gilded their path .
They stood still as the sun rose
With new rays and newer hopes .
Amor Vincit Omnia
