SEE SPRING SEE 

The spring is here, look around, 

Flowers are blooming on the ground.

Beauty is dancing everywhere, 

Birds are flying here and there. 

The severe coldness has gone away,

The soft breeze comes again today. 

Children run out with cries of delight,

The beauty of Nature is a fair sight. 

As it is a pleasant weather, 

Children want to play together.

THE BEAUTY 

Colorful flowers were blooming,

 In a circle along the river.

Inside the circle of flowers,

Different birds formed a circle.

Inside, the peacock was dancing. 

When he spread his tail, 

It looked like a fan.

His sarcastic style was overwhelming.

His face was as red as a rose petal with pride.

He could see nothing but himself.

After a while, she stopped dancing.

The beauty of the river flow, 

The beauty of the flowers, 

The different colors of the birds,

and the beauty of the trees also faded before the peacock’s dance and beauty.

Everyone was praising the beauty of the peacock.

But what about the beauty of the maker of this beauty?

UNIFAMILIAR LIFE 

There was a time when I was the center of attention of the whole family.

Because I was supporting everyone.

I used to prefer spending on my wife and children instead of spending on myself.

Then gradually I grew old and the nerves weakened.

I felt as if I had become a burden on my family.

I started to feel alone.

Life became dull and there was no one to chat with me.

Suddenly I reached the river bank with my wobbly legs.

Where Nature was spreading its colors. 

I sat in the sand on the beach.

Butterflies surrounded me as if they were welcoming me.

Melodious sound of the cuckoo reminded me of my youth.

Antics of the monkeys quickened my blood circulation.

I started swaying after seeing the smoothness of the waves of the river.

Flocks of birds were circling across the river.

Dewdrops kissing the cheeks of the flowers felt like my mother used to kiss my cheeks as a child.

White herons forgot their whiteness,

When they saw my white hair.

The white clouds were smiling at my white hair,

Like they were my lovers.

And peacock performed a dance that reminded me of my childhood.

And I started carving in the sand.

I was shedding tears of joy.

Nature sided with me.

The unfamiliar life became familiar to me.

COME SPRING COME 

Come spring come, run friend run, 

Stop spring stop, papa mama talk, 

The air is gentle, the sun is mental, 

Birds are chirping, people are thinking, 

I am dancing, friend is talking, 

Insects are creeping, animals are grazing, 

The grass is growing, the stream is flowing, 

Come spring come, run friend run.
