Holi Poem, Happy Holi Poem, The Festival of Holi is just around the corner and the celebrations have begun amidst much zest and enthusiasm. Its indeed that time of the year when you team up not just with friends and family but the neighbours too to make the most of the joyous Festival of Colours.
A legend that goes with the Holi Festival is that Lord Krishna once complained to his mother Yashoda about his dark complexion and asked why Radha is so fair. His mother suggested him to go and playfully colour Radha. Krishna went to Radha’s village in Barsana and smeared her and other Gopis with Gulaal. Thus began the tradition of Rangwali Holi, Dhuleti or Dhulandi, also called Badi Holi.
Here, we have a few cute Happy Holi Poem for you that you can send across to your dearest ones before you start celebrating it with them in person.
Aa mere pass tujhe apne hathon se sawar du,
Laal rang ke gulal se tere gaalon ko nikhar du.
Mast lagegi tu in raangon ki fuhar mein…
Teri chahat me sanam khud ko es kadar sawar du.
Satrangi hawaye chal rahi hai charo aur…,
Udd rahe hai jo raang un gulalon ki fuhar du.
Es kadar tujhe honthon ka jam-e-bahar du,
Aa mere pass tujhe apne hathon se sawar du.!!
Year after year
purity of fire
is challenged by evil,
appeased with offerings
A full moon looks on
as winds stoke embers,
to a flickering dance
Right in the center
of crimson blaze
Prahlad in her lap –
her arms a circle of heat
White sparks fly from her hair,
eyes smolder in fury;
her mouth sucks in air,
engulfs rice and wheat
smearing earth with ash.
Year after year
Holika burns to death.
