DUTY AND WORK!


Sun rises and sets everyday;
Moon rises and sets everyday;
Plough man ploughs the field;
Poets love to compose poems!

Some love to do duty well;
But many do only for profit.
How duty has to be done?
What do duty, work mean?

Duty is done expecting none;
Work is done expecting some.
Duty and work all have to do;
But duty, works are different!

Duty is life work for everyone;
Work is done to live life here!

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
