Poems of Things Around You
We can’t hear
We can fear
We fight to the death
Small in size
Small in brain
Carrying big loads
Brinjals are violet
Moon is white
Sky is blue
Leaves are green
Sun is yellow
Oranges are orange
Roses are red
Move to the centre
Now, turn around.
I am a not the blue-eyed boy of my teacher
I fight black and blue
I am a snake in the bush
I don’t stitch in time to save nine
I keep my room at sixes and sevens
I work at the eleventh hour
I want to kill two birds with one stone
I build castles in the air
I know it is difficult to sail in two boats
A grasshopper met a ladybug
He said, “Lady, lady,
Will you lay down your wings?”
The ladybug said,
“Sure, only if you lay down your legs.”
He said, “I can’t.”
She said, “I can’t.”- Total nr. of readings: 542 Copyright © The author  All Rights Reserved. This story may not be reproduced without the express written permission of the author except for personal use.
