Come Children Come - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Come children come,
Here are some exercises for you
First is hair comb.

Come children come,
This is a handkerchief play
Play with your chum.

Drum, drum and drum,
Get into the drum and roll
Read write and never glum.

Sum children sum,
Here are some sums for you
Solve these in mum.

Come children come,
Love to all, love to God
Help poor of slum.

Plumb children plumb,
Always be virtuous, kind to all
Thumb up and dance and be hum.
