On The Eve Of 2018

Winkling little naughty stars
I know your dim light can lull
But I don't want to dream
Tonight the moon will be full.

Let me wink the moon first
Let the moon smile on my wink
Let me send a flying kiss to her
Let the moonlight turn in a link.

Let the link vibrate on the air
Let it spread all over the world
Sending a message to my friends
Not too long it's just a word.

Go and awake my sleeping friends
Let them read it and they'll fly
A single word what else it may be
Yes, love I write on the sky.

All my sweet friends will sing
And with you, they will dance
Farewell to the sweet seventeen,
Romance, romance only romance,

Eureka! She is now eighteen,
Let us swim in a milky stream,
A date with the Happy New Year,
Let us wish and let us dream.

beautiful poetic expression- All my sweet friends will sing And with you, they will dance Farewell to the sweet seventeen, Romance, romance only romance,
A juvenile new year poem from an old experienced poet....kudos
She is now eighteen, Let us swim in a milky stream, A date with the Happy New Year, Let us wish and let us dream. ................................... A lovely welcome song heralding the New Year! Once more a Happy New Year to Akhtarji- the unrivalled King of Romance!
I call it a cordial piece of poetry with a sweet message that awakens your sleeping friends early in the morning on the maiden day of 2018! I quote, “Go and awake my sleeping friends/Let them read it and they'll fly/A single word what else it may be/Yes, love I write on the sky”. Thanks for sharing…Happy New year 2018.
Akhtar, such an inspiring write about 2018 as 2017 passes by...10+++
