Poem 44- The moon desire

I wish I could see the moon
I know you will think this is strange
I want to see it at noon
It should be in my touching range

The moon I wish I could touch and feel
The moon is the thing on which I shall be
On the moon I wish I could have a meal
and maybe supper and some tea

Everyday the moon bobs at night
It feels shy to come in the day
Maybe the sun gives it a fright
And very far it does stay

At night the moon scares the sun
and the sun goes in hiding
At that time the moon has fun
Until the sun comes to give the moon a thrashing

Poem 43-Going to a desert

When I was in the middle of the desert
I realized that water was very less
Of this I became very alert
Because if I wasn't I would fall in a mess

When I wanted to quench my thirst
I would tell myself NO NO!
I should keep it for the worst
as water was very low

Riding on the camel was a big pain
Because it was the first time I was riding
For the first time I wished that it would rain
So that I could go along while drinking

At last I saw a oasis
So I finished my last bottle in a hurry
I thought this was a bliss
But later I got such fury

A mirage it had been
I almost fainted
Oh! What had I seen
Now in a few hours I might be dead

But as it grew darker
My village I could see
I went to a shop and drank water
Oh! Thank you God for saving me

Poem 42- Bad Man

He smoked a cigar
and I saw him going to the bar
He is a bad man people said
the street is his house and bed

Even though he is a beggar
about his life he has no fear
He tells he wants to die
nobody knows why

On my way
I see him every day
that man is sometimes funny
he asks me for money

That man though bad
must also be mad
to ask money from a child
Isn't he wild?
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 41- Lovely Twilight

It's just about to be twilight
today everything went right
there was not even a minor fight
and even I was very polite

The sun too looks very lovely
I look at it and it looks at me
Today the sun's each ray
Is going towards the correct way

Just look at the beautiful sunset
I wish I could capture it using a net
and just look at the lovely sun
I want to dance and have some fun

Though I feel a bit shy
To you now I say good bye
Because I'll go and see some more of the sight
and see the suns beautiful glowing light
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 40- Fight Global Warming

All of us have got a warning
That Earth is getting hot
It is Global Warming
and then Earth will rot

There won't be a bit of green
My Oh My!
Plants won't be seen
because all of us will die

Where once life had met
will completely have been gone
there will be no blue planet
and nobody will see twilight or dawn

We should work very fast
we should be active
we should make the future to past
only then can we live

Poem 39- Fat cat

My cat gained lots of weight
By eating lots of junk food
Fat is my cats state
and he does not look good

My pet is very fat
He refuses to become thin
My dear cat
will burst if poked with a pin

All day he will only eat
or only sleep
let it be cat food or meat
he will never weep

One day I got a shock
Now you will know what I saw
It could not walk
In-fact it could not lift even a paw

I forcefully made him thin
now he is in correct size
So that he won't burst out of his skin
I made him exercise

Poem 38- The lost key

I saw a key in the hot desert sand
To pick it up down went my hand
The key I was about to pick
When on my back I felt a hard kick

When I turned a man was looking at me
He said' That key holds my name can't you see?'
I picked it up and gave it to the man
He took it and then he ran

At once I realized he might be a robber
and not the key's owner
I felt like I was running in a race
because from that minute on was the chase

The man had a head start
'But don't give up' said my mind and heart
The man was too fast for me
And so he ran with the key

Poem 37- Night Fright

One very dark night
When Earth was lit by the moon
I thought everything was going right
But I said this too soon

I could not sleep a wink
So I switched on the light
At that time I heard a clink!
So I closed the light in Fright

I heard something fall
I thought it was a thief
It came from the hall
but that did not give me any relief

I cautiously opened the room's door
getting scared even more
To the hall I ran and ran
Hoping that on me won't pounce a man

But once there what a shock I got
A thief it was not
It was only my pet cat
chasing a baby rat

After counting sheep
I did fall asleep
In the morning I went to my cat
And gave it a pat

So that very night
Not everything went right
This funny incident
Into the family history it went

It is almost forgotten
by every person
But this night which was moonlit
I still remember it

Poem 36- One little bird

One hot morning
I heard the birds sing
and then I saw them fly
very very high

They flew into the sky
to fly I would love to try
this is not a lie
but i really want to fly

Oh! But there is one little bird
it seems to be injured
i heard it cry
as it tried to fly

I thought I'll take it to my hut
so that I can plaster it's cut
But what if I do not?
It might die in the hot

But how will I catch the bird
I really wondered
At that time it flew
But believe me this story is true

Poem 35- Faith in God

In God we must believe
from morning to eve
When you are in danger
absolutely have no fear

God is there everywhere
over here and over there
If you want God in your heart
This is how you must start

All you should do is pray
In your heart God will longer stay
Every problem of yours God will share
He will come to you without turning a hair

Once I had to go to an examination
Very late I had reached the station
But God had stopped the train
by pouring down unexpected rain

Another time I had lost my way
And to God I did pray
When I was crying in pain
God put me on the correct lane
