Swimming for a healthy body
For a healthy mind
For a relaxation from problems
Swimming a beautiful experience.

To swim in the river
In the lake
Through the heavy flows
Skills to be learnt with care.

Swimming in the flood
That becomes more dangerous
In a river, overflowing water
Flood is having undercurrents.

To swim like a fish
Like a tortoise
More I liked in my childhood
But never could I achieve.

I have seen people drowned
Their corpse and the sad event
The family's hardships
Water where one must be careful.

An old man in my childhood
I have seen him swimming
In heavy flood and deep currents
Tied up empty coconuts his tool.

He was a strange and wonderful man
Having such an ability to swim
Whatever the depth and width of river
But he missed for ever
That too in such an accident he drowned.

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
