Athul KrishnaA

(17th august 1997 / Kottayam, Kerala)

06 Water


Water, water everywhere;
But not a single dropp to drink!

The oceans stretch wide and broad;
All over the world, full of water, never to dry up!

Lakes and rivers;
They are everywhere,

As ice in the hills, and oasis in the deserts;
As vapor in air, and as water in oceans!

Man wastes and misuses
The valuable, water!

Life won't exist without water
So do not pollute it for,

WE NEED IT TO DRINK.

    Athul, great job! Here are a few corrections you might make.

    Water, water everywhere;
    But not a single (drop) to drink!

    The oceans stretch wide and broad;
    All over the world, full of water, never to dry up!

    Lakes and rivers;
    They are everywhere,

    As ice in the hills and oasis in the deserts; (no comma)
    As vapor in air and as water in oceans! (no comma)

    Man wastes and misuses
    The valuable, water!

    Life won't exist without water
    So do not pollute it for,

    WE NEED IT TO DRINK. (Report) Reply

Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
