A day in a farmer’s life

Early in the morning he goes to the farm

To sow wheat, maize, paddy and gram

He digs the soil with a spade

He never minds the sun, and no shade

Sometimes extreme rain shakes his crops

Sometimes he has to pray for the drops

He works till sunset

When he reaches home its

always late

He works hard for his

children and wife

And also for his own

valuable life.

Tigers :

Tigers are strong and big

They live in the jungle

Tigers sleep during day

And hunt in the night

Tigers can jump

But cannot fly.

Blue, blue sky :

See the blue sky

Where the birds fly

The birds are very happy

Because the sky is not cloudy

I wonder why the sky is blue

But I don’t have any clue

I dream to walk in the sky

But I don’t have any wings to fly

When the sky is bright

Everything is in sight

When the sky is dark

Even dogs don’t like to bark.

Winged beauties :

Birds are beautiful

creatures

Some birds are faithful

And carry message from one place to another

Some birds are of great use to us

Birds like many things

Which gives energy

They have hollow bones

Which helps them fly

Some people kill birds

So, we should be careful

And try to protect them.

Questions :

I ask myself on

What makes me wonder

Is it the blue sky or

The loud thunder?

The ground’s grass green

Or anything around us that can be seen?

The fresh apple red

Or a little baby in bed?

The ever moving waterfall

Or answering questions in the exam hall?

The flying brown lark

Or the ocean’s dangerous shark?

The waves lapping the shore

Or the picture above the door?
