Safety of the dear ones
A concern to the parent all times
Safety measures as they teaches
when the children grows with.

Father decided to teach the son
To swim in waters of ponds and river
But failed in its own terms and attempts
He was not brave enough to let his son.

Both father and son went to the lake
where enough steps and water available
But still they failed to attain their goal
The reason is the same as before
The father lost the confidence to free him.

Father was decisive to teach the son
But not to swim in waters but in the world
Enough tools he gave to him through books
More of it included poetry of morals
Here father won his attempts
The son taught to write poetry and recite it.

Swimming have different meaning in different time
Life itself is felt as a large river stream
To learn swimming in such waters of deepness
Try and teach the younger ones with motivation.

Swimming is a good safety measure in waters and teaching to swim by the near ones is difficult sometimes unless there is braveness.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
