MAHATMA GANDHI


A great person of peace,
Who to all wars called a cease,
And who prevented bloodshed,
And who India to freedom led.

A lawyer who was in Africa,
And who racial discrimination saw,
He solved the problem there,
And then, he, Indian problems laid bare.

He fought using non-violence,
In senseless people he put sense,
He led India to greatness,
And he India thus did bless.

He pushed the British out of our land,
To the ordinary people he lent a hand,
A greater person never did walk this earth,
To a greater person never did India give birth.

A great solver of problems he was,
He was never at a loss,
To give an answer to problematic questions,
He was the only one to say no to guns.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
