A Tiny Ant

Smallest creature, wonderful is wisdom
Sensed the warmth, preparing for rain
Searched grains, but far of home
Planned up and down travel,in well defined lanes
Stormed on heap, cordoned all around
Carrying load more than it’s weight
Following the route like convoy of a command
Swift are actions like army in war
No rest no respite until store is stuffed
Enough for all the rain days to come
Wonderful a creature,nice of wisdom
Reference of strength, unity, discipline to mankind.

    ANTS ANTS ANTS....... Annoying as they sometimes can be, Wouldn't it be wonderful if the people of this world could only follow the work ethic of the lowly ant.
    All our forefathers worked diligently and hard to give us all the life we lead today.
    Many of us have taken leisure a little too far and expect others to supply for us, much like the Queen in the nest. (Report) Reply

    We can learn many things from ants. They are always in harmony with one another. They don't rest until their objective is achieved. They are the glorious example of discipline, unity and integrity. Great poem. I liked and rated it 10. Thanks for sharing..... (Report) Reply

    Melodious verses, full of wisdom. The ants can teach us a lot. They work together, they sacrifice and look how much of brain they need to these wonderful things. We with our big brains are quite often lagging behind. Let us use the littel bit needed at least for working together and sacrificing something for each other.
    Thanks for sharing this very good poem. (Report) Reply
