This is the best time of the year,
The weather is lovely and the air is festive here,

All around the block you see flower beds being tilled,
Little saplings being planted and the gardens being frilled,

Many houses are getting a makeover,
Coated in fresh paint looking vibrant and raver,
Many are being scrubbed spotlessly clean,
Not a speck of dust to be anywhere seen,

Curtains are being changed for a new look,
Sofas drycleaned and vases placed at the nook,

The markets are abuzz with a lot of buying,
As people go in a frenzy doing their shopping,

Sales are on everywhere,
Women are most excited as that’s the only thing they care,

It’s Diwali time folks,
And an aura of revelry it stokes!
