A Clarion Call


Let us have hope
for the morrow,
and be free
from all sorrow.
Working day & night,
and doing only what's right!
Ensuring Peace and Prosperity
across our Motherland.

A single Nation
united as one,
61 years since,
Independence was won.
The duty we owe
is to salvage our land,
inspite of strife,
and mischievous hands.

A mighty loud roar,
to the forces of good;
who fight evil and pain
and deliver us again..
Conflicts overcome,
tranquility will be won;
with Unity and Love,
A Blessing from Above.

'United, we stand,
Divided, we fall'! '
A struggle against violence
and not against love.
May the land flourish
and may God give us a Hand,
Let Sri Lanka live
Like no other Land!

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
