Diwali (Never Have I Seen.....)

Never have I seen such a victory,
Of true smiles o'er the dark false shrieks,
Of few true minutes o'er the wicked hours
Where skies are adorned with ‘fire-showers',
Of the busiest day o'er the tranquil weeks; alone
Where the lamps too shine,
Far better than how the mighty sun
Would have shone.
