The huge bamboos, once bare,
Are now covered with beautiful, pale white flowers,
The yellow and green leaves,
Of the bamboos looming in the vast sky,
Make nature so beautiful and sweet.
Behold the pointed, shiny leaves,
Red, green, yellow, mauve
What’s happened these days
to earthworms? Have they
There was a time when they
were the colour of soil
Only when they wriggled
Could you make them out.
Now giant sized, out of burrows
Kappu Maharaj, wake up fast
The morning birds are chirping sweet
“Unnn..nn..unn” said Kappu
In a voice full of sleep
Little Kappu sat on his pot
But did not manage a single dot.
When his mother asked “Are you done?
Ramu plays at football
While Shyamu rings the bell
They make the circus lively –
We clap our hands and yell!
Ramu is so clever
And Shyamu is so free
They’re the wonder elephants
Whom people come to see.
I’m going, I’m going on a safari
Driving around in my big lorry
Jungle animals I shall see
As they live, quite naturally,
Not behind the cages, tied
Lions, elephants, zebras, birds.
Moving together in their herds.
