"The F!RsT dAy"

The first day at hostel on the first day of Engineering,

If only I could see a known person..I started peering

Caught the vague smile of a new girl who was equally anxious,

The thought of leaving home making me obnoxious!!

Rounded the college once trying to recognise any known faces,

College greenery won my heart, and even the garden of hybrid roses!

The first sight of F.E.D. or Fresh Man Engg Department,

Filled high spirits in me and even caused resentment!

LIKE JACK OF ALL TRADES learnt many new things

Half day classes with phy,chem and engineering drawings!

The first Engg Graphics class with drafters on shoulders!

As if ready to battle with swords in holders!

Reading Novels, magazines and gossiping,

Lunch breaks Evening chats and mass-bunking!

Sitting in the last benches and doing lecturer’s mime,

Got used to One night stand when comes the exams time!!

Farewell parties, Slam books first day turned to last day so soon,

Felt only at the final departure that College is also a boon!

The first day as a professional started,

Never ending story and we will never get parted!!!:-)

Thanks for your time :)
