A Living Lesson

Poem By Natarajan Ramaseshan

Life's charming, full of meaning;
No more mourning-no complaining.
Problems many may daily come
Confront them-You will overcome!

Contentment is the best treasure.
Avarice makes you poor in measure.
Let not wealth be the only goal-
Peace of mind has a greater role!

Think before you speak at all
Uttered words will hold you in thrall
By harshness only hatred is sown
And all your noble deeds are blown.

The dizzy heights of power and glory
Make you forget your old story.
Remember well your lowly start
Lest ego swells your proud heart!

Before a fall, goes your pride
Don't ever move along its stride!
An honest, humble and dutiful person
Is on earth a 'living lesson'

Hello Halloween

Hello, hello Halloween
Fun and frolic, you have been.
Eerie stories doing rounds
Shades of candles forming hounds.

Freedom Courageous

He who yearns for freedom courageous
Will he ever crave for anything outrageous?
He who longs for ambrosia divine
Will he ever think of toddy or wine?

Rise At Dawn

Little children, rise at dawn-
Behold all the joys of morn!
An early bird chirps or sings;
Fragrance rides on airy wings;

William Tell

William Tell, the hero of the Swiss-
Bowman whose aim ne'er went amiss.

Far and wide spread his fame


she smiles
an unblemished morning flower

San Diego

Go to San Diego, you go
Learn history of times long ago.
Where cultures Spanish-Mexican
Blend with trend that's American.
