Family That Saved. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

A village family lived there
The mother was so silent
Worked hard for sustenance
To feed her children in time
The elder one got the chances
Great help to the mother always
Water from the well he took
The pots were kept full always
The paddy field he maintained
Good harvest helped them to survive
The little kerosene lamp that hung
In the thatched roof brightened
An old radio sung the song
An old radio told the news
Inspire the young ones for future
Send them to schools for study
To open the mind, for better vision
The mother prayed well for future
Schools they sent the little ones
By hunger or not they studied well
Together he knew the value of letters
Together he knew value of work
Work always worship he understood
The cattle shed cleaned in mornings
The cow dung he removed from cowshed
The manures he done well in field
A great hope of prosperity in family
The stomachs were full, happiness all
The mother, felt so proud of her son
In an evening there came a post
The happy news of an appointment letter
A suitable placement the son got
Still he loved his village life
Still he worked hard every time
The new assignment he joined in pride.
