Pongaso'Ru - Poem by sisirachandra vaduge

‘ Rajinee you keep-up hearth '
' I will mix flavors for 'munetakiribath'
' Yes baby, aren't you grunge, what a beautiful here your cloth '
' Don't worry, I will ready every thing for this great auspicious forfeit '

Brilliant sun illuminate amicable surround
Gathering serve meal prepared under Botree compound
Men and women hospitable for everyone of that ground
Bees, butter, fly-dragons and pigeons crisscrosing around

Happy children's conservation is a great aspiration
On this holy Buddha's day of plantation
Invoke blessing by smother starvation
Pacify plants, animal and human depict forehead 'thunnooru' application

Nature conservation
For future generation
Water source inevitable for cultivation
God's blessing know well these children

Exemplifying administration
No other practical solution
Together education
Our prediction they may up-build that aspiring nation...
