Please do not cut the green grass!


I am the grass; I cover all.
-Carl Sandburg

'They cut the grass their children to run
And where do I play with my little ones? '
The old Grasshopper Father cries.

'Please do not cut the grass
As your children have enough parks to run,
It's a sin that Lawnmower cuts not only the grass?
Thin necks of our whole nation too! '
The old Grasshopper Mother shouts.

*To brother Premji Premji in gratitude!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
