Balloons Fly But They Are Not Kites

Balloons fly but they are not kites
Student is not a writer though he writes
Lamp shines but it is not a star
Scooter scoots but it is not a car
Grasshopper jumps but it is not a boy
Man does antics but he is not a toy
Lake is not a mirror though it reflects the face
String ties up things but it is not a lace
Pipe is round but it is not a pole
Rain falls but it is not a waterfall
Neighbour is a human but he is not a foe
Relative is the guest but he is not a low
Passenger begs of help but he is not a beggar
Thirsty asks for water bhut he is not a poor
