First Day To School
It is a winter morning
The sun is arisen in the East
To the God I'm praying
In a splendour dawn, full of mist.
'Let me stay well, let my wish be fulfilled'
To the God I urge my will.
I'm both anxious and curious
As its my first day to the school
'My son, go now' asks my mother pious
And I go wearing a sweater made of wool
'I shall not go, I shall not go', I shout
Listening thrilling stories from other's mouth.
Beating or grasping ears in own hand-
All punishing methods are well-known
'Do the home-work and reach before band',
One said 'otherwise ups and downs'.
Yet I had to go school being gloomy
Leaving fear behind, carrying hope dreamy.
At last I'm under the roof of the school
Somewhat coyness, somewhat fear
So beautiful my school beside a pool
As if, the garden called me as 'dear'
Emitting its fragrance all around
That very day by the school I was bound.
