Swan And Peacock - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Here see the swan
Swan has a sensitive beak
Swan can distinguish
Pure milk from a mixture
Of milk and water.
Swan can say it is right
It is wrong and it is good
It is bad.

Here is the peacock sits and
Waits anxiously to serve
All knowledge
Peacock depicts
Unpredictable behavior
As the nature of peacock
Changes by changes in weather,

Rely upon the swan, my dear
And rely not the peacock
And overcome hesitancy and
Fickleness in order to
Acquire true knowledge
This is the significance
Of today's Saraswati Puja
The goddess of all knowledge.
