Our land

Nepal is my motherland

Greater than any other land

The bravery of Nepalis

Is told by every stone

and sand.

In the whole wide world

Gautam Buddha

chose Nepal

As his birthplace

Here, Sita was born

And made our country known.

My country is the best is the world I respect my country as my Lord.

— Rephika Maharjan, Class VII, Heaven Secondary School

Little bird

Once I saw a little bird

Come hop, hop, hop

And I cried to the bird

Will you stop, stop, stop.

I went to the window

To say how do you do

But he shook his little tail

And away he flew.

— Priyashna Shrestha, Class III, DAV School
