A Horse Riding Boy!

A boy goes on horse riding to school!
He doesn’t like cycle or bike or vehicle!
His parents work in foreign countries;
They are ready to give him even bike;
He insisted on horse only for his ride!

He has collected points on horse also;
So, he has got horse for going to school.
He spends Rs.150 daily for his horse;
He even participates so on functions
And he earns considerable amount too!

His aim is to become a race horse jockey!
He learns a lot by doing from now on.
His aim is not to become a book worm;
His vision, idea and action is to achieve
Unlike other boys of his age in school!

Music, arts, games and creativity make
One great after education as it is sure!
A horse riding boy is an inspiration indeed
For kids to develop talent and rise high!
Education is just basic alphabetical letters;
But new creativity only makes one great!

    Your horse riding boy wins my vote, Ramesh. Let's face it. There are many types of intelligences - not all of them academic. And to do what you love is more important than gaining pieces of paper. A fascinating poem from a fascinating poet. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
