Our Heavenly Village
by Aarna P.
(Gurgaon, India )
The glorious sunshine brightens up my day,
The pine trees invite me for a joyful play,
The sparrows are building a gorgeous nest,
The villagers are waking up from rest,
I’m delighted to traverse through this beautiful day,
Where the cows moo and the horses neigh.
The village boys are ploughing the fields,
Anticipating what their hard work yields,
A group of ducks swim in the lake,
Along with the fish and the water snake,
With flying ponytails, the girls run around,
Their laughter echoes a musical sound.
Our village ground is where we gather,
Play, work, and see dreams together,
The moist grass smells so divine,
Illuminated by the blazing sunshine,
The little ones roll on it for fun,
And, then get up quickly to run.
Grannies sing and walk along,
Stopping and grooving to a beautiful song,
Grandpas sow seeds in a line,
Creating a breathtaking design,
Children bicycle around the lake,
Enjoying their amazingly playful break.
Our village is immersed in the beauty of nature,
Working tirelessly to create a prosperous future,
A beacon of light for the world to see,
That healthy and happy is the way to be,
Where harmony and peace is carefully observed,
And, nature and the environment are earnestly preserved.
