Jumping Jumping Went To School
Morning, morning saw outside
Everything looks fresh, fresh, green, green
Felt to take long, long breaths
Want to be as fresh
Brush in mouth up & down, sideways
Sprinkled water to the face
Mummy calls to have some milk
Glimpses from the window
Birds chirping, hopping, hopping, tree to tree
Wondering, wondering where do they go
Questioning myself, do they have a school too?
Yells Mummy to have bath & breakfast
Oh! Mummy! Mummy!! Coming, coming
Jumping, jumping went to school
Nursery rhymes for children are to make know of the things of the world. Their vocabulary has to improve day by day. Their morning duties are compulsive to make them good healthy citizens of tomorrow. Slowly and steadily their queries to the world must be answered. They should always feel good to go to school, as it is a place of learning and knowledge building.
Some of my latest posts you have been reading are one such attempt. I am happy you all have been enjoying. Thanks
The Long Wait
“The Long wait was so Long
Thus came the Last breath”
These two lines suddenly came from my mouth in a different context yesterday night. Today morning I received two death messages. Two of them were ailing since long, long time. One was my Aunty and the other was my manager’s father. Every time they almost announced – shall die in a few hours, but they emerged back to life and of course but not of a normal life, but still ailing. The wait for their death was too long.
I feel such people are innumerable in number in the whole of the world. The near and dear ones taking so much care though, but would be waiting for their death, as continuance of the situation would still worsen their health.
Some lines are such, you can take them in many situations, and these are one such. The Long wait may be a child’s settlement in Life, the child’s job or job hike, parents waiting for children’s marriage, a share in the family property, a prolonging court case. All such sorts..
The long wait is so long that we keep waiting and waiting for it to happen but it does not occur and at last comes the last breath. Not going much into what all situations and contexts we all have, I conclude as everyone have their own. Rest, in the comments please. Hahaha!
