Happy Onam! – Poem
Ten days of happiness, love and care
Beautiful set attires I wear
Fragrance of flowers everywhere
When this beloved festival arrive
Poverty does not thrive
The festival is Onam
The sun above the land shines with joy
We arrange different flowers in different designs and enjoy
Boat racing, Tug of war is some games played
The inviting taste comes from the sadya made
Onam comes straight from the god’s own home town
It has the power to make people smile and to erase away that frown
My family and friends happily celebrating together
All these memories always in my heart forever.
