Mere bookish knowledge won’t help
sheer passion for learning insufficient
jostling too may prove to be futile
patience only staff to lean on in life
Mahatma knew it well, led by example!
Power-packed vehicles thrill the youth
what thrills may not fill empty glass of love
how to ‘drink life to the lees’ Ulysses knew
following him may not be that easy
life needs caution, control for smooth sailing.
Survival matters most for life in all forms
plantation, transplantation ensure vegetation
spirit of a sapling - highway to happiness
residual delight - stairway to success
flickering hope kindles alleys dark.
A flower is known by fragrance spread
acts of grace lend growth and glow!
