We Can Look


Lovely children
You are like bright sun
Any country may shine
With your precious possession

How garden may present show?
If it has no colorful plants to grow
When it lacks plan to take care!
How any one can think of and dare?

Such flowers need our attention
To blossom with careful relation
Free movement with mind to develop
Encouragement to new ideas with zeal nonstop

Poor children need not be neglected
They should be carefully groomed
If not more but with necessary education
Good nutritious food with enough of ration

Any country can afford little aid
That must go direct with words unsaid
Country does no special favor
It is our sacred duty with honor

We can look to bright future
If children come up with good care
The nation may benefit from their contribution
Such gesture must reflect in our resolution

of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
