Happy Holi: Children’s Poetry on Holi Festival

The trees smile with their sprout
of tender leaves and blooming flowers,
Eternal nature with its transient expressions
Hails spring with ecstasy and joy!

Bewildering shades with so many tinge.
The land of beauty and greatness,
India, witnessing color of happiness and peace
Nation come alive to enjoy the spirit
A celebration of color – Holi!
An experience of content, harmony and delight

Holika burns amidst merriment and mirth.
Evil overpowered by love and devotion.

A festival to commemorate ‘Ras Lila
an enduring love saga of Radha and Krishna.

Gulal – red, green, yellow and countless
A day’s canvas – a riot of colors
Lively crowd running hither and thither,
Rainbow of colors, dashing from every nook and corner
Disregarding their woe and despair fervent folks,
rejoicing at the marvel of colors.

A day filled with luster and gaiety,
A day to smear our dreams –
With a splash of vibrant frenzy colors
Holi Hai! A spring of unbounded fun and frolic!

Holi is a major Hindu festival, celebrated annually in spring season. It is the festival of colors during which people, streets and houses could be seen covered in different colors. It is also called the festival of love, as people play with colors, forgetting their old enmity and renewing the relationships.

Holi is a two day festival, which begins the night before the main festival with choti (small) holi, when large pyre is burned on streets as a symbol of Holika dahan (burning of the demoness Holika) symbolic to the victory of good over evil. The next day people play with colors and in evening visit each other exchanging greetings and sweets. The custom of visiting friends and relatives continues for over a week.
