Terrible World


Terrible World

When I see a colorful butterfly flying in the orchard
I find world is beautiful.

When I see a honey-bee sucking honey from the petals of a red rose
I find world is beautiful.

When I see a sixteen year old girl sitting under the shade of a bower
I find world is beautiful.

When I see a lonely deer grazing in the meadow of Kaziranga
I find world is beautiful.

When I see some unknown people are gathering arms in the forest to kill innocent people
I find world is terrible.

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
