Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Little By Little


Little, little, slow and steady
Family prospers and gets ready
Happiness and joy comes by grace
Honesty reflects and satisfaction is seen on face

Drop by drop tank becomes empty
Wealth too shrinks if taken lavishly from treasury
Add little more than what you spend
Life will be smooth till you end

Treasury becomes empty
If not taken care and spent lavishly
It has to be added more and more
Good ways for spending to be explored

Kings are often called mindless
As the have nothing to worry or chase
The administration is looked after by able ministers
They take enough care to see that income exceeds expenditure

So gain little by little
Increase knowledge step by step
Avoid big jump with enough of care
There is full life with us to dare

Vitamins too may cause side effect
If taken in excess by foolish act
If taken in proper quantity
It may improve upon strength and capacity

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
