When I was a little girl,
I asked my mother,
Why should I go to school,
And this is what she said,”o;kid,,
you have to learn,
So that when you come of age,
You can get a job and earn,
And let us our butter churn”
And thus I learnt the first lesson of my life,
Before I completed my school
That love is not free in this world,
One who doesn’t know this is a fool.
A thought comes to my mind
that mother earth is much more kind
For her you have only to till, fill
One thing one must bear in mind
That greedis not liked by anyone,
And mother earth is no exception,
Do not kill the goose giving golden eggs,
Or milk the cow too much,
If you pollute the air,
by cutting mother earth’s hair,
Green in colour
To reap the fruits,
You will not be there
