Future Leaders


Children are flowers
Of fruit bearing trees
Innocent and tender
Ready to develop the future.

Animosity of the old
Does not hold any more
Curiosity of the child
Will change the world for good.

Child is the leader
Just a few years from now
Nurture every child
Provide atmosphere to grow.

We were all children once
What glorious days they were
Let our children have those days
New days will dawn with glory.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
