SECRET OF GROWTH


When my legs rested in Japan

For a certain time’s span

I witnessed there many a things

Some pleasant, a few with shattered wings.



Once two cars smashed into each other

So, the traffic could could move no further

Both drivers soon came out

Unguessed to me, instead to shout

They bowed to each other, with manner

On their face, humanity’s humble cover

And under the polite tone of regret

And excellent example both set

Each said, “ Oh sir, for God’s sake

Forgive me, it was my mistake.”

So each smiled and in happiness

Passed through the way with much grace.



This demonstrates the saturation

Of a nation’s spiritual exhilaration

And strength of their national endurance

How can be kept positive balance

In much advanced, progressive way

To stay alive till the final day.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
