Poem 25-Insects

insects are very small,
so small they can cling to a wall
grasshoppers,lizards and spiders
are very good hiders.

smaller insects like termites and ants,
are so small,they can hide under plants.
they mean no harm, even in a farm.
they just want a home,
where they can freely roam.

so let us not kill insects
and think too are gods pets

Poem 24-On a Bus...

Once on the way to Bangalore
I entered the bus and sat in my seat
My mother who came last closed the door
as I was relaxing my feet

I thought I will go to sleep
But I was thinking very deep
about my nice vacation
which I was enjoying in my nation
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 23- Heavy rain

While I was walking down the lane
down poured the rain
while running I lost my way
and reached a shop called flowers of May

But the shop was not open any more
said the notice on the door
luckily the rain stopped
I jumped, skipped, danced and hopped

I soon remembered the way
and no longer there did I stay
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 22- Spring

In the early days of spring
I heard the birds sing
and saw the flowers bloom
from the window of my room

Only in the beauty of light
could I see this excellent sight
My garden is the best
I thought as I went to rest
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 21 -Going to the Moon

I said I'll go to the moon
I hope the day will come soon
For a long time I did wait
For the big date (to go to the moon)

I hope somebody will give me a boon
So that i can go to the moon
but who will give it to me?
So that to the moon I can flee
-Gaurang Rao

Fold in Bathroom

This incident took place when I was 5 years old. I had learned how to fold my bed cover. One day me and my sister were folding our bed covers at the same time, as our room was quite small there was not too much of space to stand and fold. I got angry and went to the bathroom and folded it there. I didn’t know I should not do it in the bathroom. My parents and sister had a hearty laugh at this incident. Later when I was a bit older I realized what I had done. I still feel ashamed of myself of doing such a thing.
