Poems forever

Spring, the sweet spring

By Thomas Nashe

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,

Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,

Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:

Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The palm and may make country houses gay,

Lambs frisk and play, the shepherds pipe all day,

And we hear aye birds tune this merry lay:

Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,

Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,

In every street these tunes our ears do greet:

Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!

Spring, the sweet spring!


By Amna Ameer

I always wondered

Why is it

That some flowers bloom

In someone else’s spring

Why my bougainvillea

Remained dormant

Like a premeditated prayer

Almost at the altar

But always self conscious

Yet something happened

This spring

It adorned itself

Those empty branches

Laden in delicate flowers

Of pink promises

In full bloom

And I realise

All blossoms

Come with a hope

A wish that can come true

Only if you trust

The process

In due time

Every autumn

Must meet

The new season

Of spring

Absent presence

By Abid Agha

Sometimes you are seen in a cafe

Savouring sips of your favourite coffee, slowly

Your eyes glued

To the thick foam atop the coffee

Unaware of your surroundings.

Sometimes you are found

Relaxing on a comforting couch

In the cozy afternoons of December

Lost in the pages of your favorite novels

With a bowl of pasta alfredo cradled in your hands.

Other times, you wander alone

Through the bustling corridors of malls

Or settle into a cozy patio for a moment

Where the ambiance welcomes your presence with joy.

Your presence is a recurring roulette

In the café with your coffee

On the couch with your books

Strolling through crowded malls

Pausing in tranquil patios

Each moment witnessed by the surroundings with delight

While I, left behind, witness your absence with no sight
