Dowel Poem

Hindu Alliday

by ragerde

Mid Autumn. Hindus, Sikhs and Jains celebrate Diwali,
This festival of light is a time to. be jolly.
Diwali marks the start of the Hindu New Year.
Its a time for hope, celebration and cheer.
Diwali brings children gifts of celebratory sweets,
Like American kids' Valentine and. Halloween treats.
Diwali is a celebration of husbands and wives,
And anniversaries the rest of their lives.
Diwali honors goddess Lakshmi and human mothers
For all the good they do for others.
Much like the American Fourth of July,
Diwali's fireworks light up the sky.
When the bountiful summer harvest is brought in,
Diwali, the annual Thanksgiving festival, begins.
Holiday presents, like those under the Christmas tree,
Diwali is marked by the year's biggest shopping spree.
Like Hannakuk candles and strings of Christmas lights,
On Diwali, rows of oil lamps light up the night.
Diwali is a time of love, giving and fun.
It is like many American holidays rolled into one.
