A Deepavali Song(For Children) - Poem by Indira Renganathan

"Onthe eve of Deepavali
Let's all have a nice dinner"
They all sing together merrily
They all sing together merrily
"Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali
Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali"

Papa says"I want kheer kheer"
Grandpa says"begin with soup soup"
Grandma says"no no, "juice juice"
Big son says"I want some tikkas"
Big girl says"some potato fries"
Little sister says"I want pizza"

"Ha ha ha ha" all're laughing..

Out from the kitchen mamma comes
Says"no exotic eating
on the eve of Deepavali
Be traditional with onion sambar
Potato curry, pappad, vada, rasam
Kheer and halwa, ofcourse with rice "

Crying loudly's little sister
Papa comes up consoling little sister
Takes her to the pizza shop after dinner
"Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali"
They all sing together merrily

On the day of Deepavali
Prior to the dawn so wakefully
All rise like the new sun early
All rise like the new sun early

Remembering slain Narakasuran
Freshened of a Ganga Snaan
Feeling free of an evil
Attired colourful of a new cheer
Wishing one and all the best
They all sing together merrily
"Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali
Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali"

Lights and lamps all lit bright everywhere
Deepavali rises firing crackers
Laughter bursting jubilation dancing
Mamma calls in everyone for breakfast

"Ha ha ha ha" all're laughing..

Idli dosa vada pongal traditional
Sambar cutney kichdi upma additional
Paratha poori sauce and sabji national
Sweets and snacks all multinational
They all glut and gobble, glut and gobble
Till no space left in tummy for lunch

Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali
Visitors and visitscontinue
Firing crackers continue
Food and festivities continue
Year after year, year after year
Deepavali too continues
"Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali
Happy Deepavali happy Deepavali
All sing together merrily"

    The poem breathes out the festive gaiety of Diwali. Everyone is in a mood for eating a sumptuous fare and enjoying life. The festival of light is welcomed in every household with great pomp and joy. The old and the young equally partake of this festive gaiety. A lovely poem which will definitely be loved by children.
