My cat and I:
I am a naughty little brat
With an equally naughty cat.
I have eyes like an owl
My cat is as soft as a towel.
We are a team and
We both hate sunbeam
Me and my cat Lee.

Flowers are beautiful
Flowers are nice
If you think they are dreadful
You are like the mice.
Butterflies like it
So do the farmers
But some of them harm it
Theyâ€™re the traders.
Some buy flowers
For selfish reason
They donâ€™t care flowers die
Before their full season.

My friends love spring, autumn and winter
But I find monsoon much better.
Though flowers bloom and birds sing in spring
Yet I love the falling rain and the thunder.
But sometimes there is a big blunder
Nepal is an agricultural country you know
Farming is the main
Plants and animals need plenty of rain
Thatâ€™s the reason I love rain
I put on my gumboots and raincoat
As I walk down the lane
I hear the pitter-patter of the rain
And I sail my paper boat in the drain
I splash muddy water in the road
Finally I reach school with a big old toad.

I have a dream:
I have a dream to develop my country
And bring peace once again
I have a dream to serve my country.
And abolish sorrows and pains
I have a dream to climb up high
And help my country to touch the sky.
So I have lots of dreams
Dreams that I will have to fulfil
Dreams that I will have to make a reality.
And I know it is not that easy
I am working hard to make my dreams come true
And I know I will have to keep on doing so.
Though I will have to keep on doing so
I know I will not give up
Instead keep on doing along with the time.

Today when I am in nine, I realise
Grade eight has given me beautiful memories
From the first to the very last day
Every moment has something to say.
They will be remembered by me
As the â€˜Voyage Through Golden Sea!â€™
I am as now not living in the past
And the time is running very fast
But still feeling very sad today
I am forced to say.
Those moments when
We were so happy and gay
Has today gone very far away
Very far away.
