WITHOUT ELECTRICITY- A nursery rhyme

Standard

I wrote this rhyme for my sister’s play school for the junior science fair. It is an attempt to make children understand the importance of electricity and how it has made our lives easy and that we should save it or else our coming generations would crave for it. I hope you enjoy it with your little ones!

Benjamin Franklin has done a great deed,

He discovered electricity!

Without electricity our lives would be so dull!

Dull Dull Dull!

Our lives would be so dull.

How could we have turned on the lights?

Dark Dark Dark!

At night, our lives would be so dark!

How could we get cool air of the fans?

Sweat Sweat Sweat!

We would be wet in our sweat!

How would we have cleaned our laundry everyday?

Wash Wash Wash!

We would have to wash without the wash-ing machine!

How would we call our friends?

Tring Tring Tring!

There would be no phones to ring!

Where would we store our ice-cream?

Dream Dream Dream!

We all would dream of ice-cream!

How would our lives be easy?

Easy Easy easy!

We all would be so busy!

Therefore, save electricity as I say!

Save Save Save!

Or else the future would crave!

Knew A Woman by Theodore Roethke

I knew a woman, lovely in her bones,
When small birds sighed, she would sigh back at them;
Ah, when she moved, she moved more ways than one:
The shapes a bright container can contain!
Of her choice virtues only gods should speak,
Or English poets who grew up on Greek
(I’d have them sing in chorus, cheek to cheek.)
How well her wishes went! She stroked my chin,
She taught me Turn, and Counter-turn, and stand;
She taught me Touch, that undulant white skin:
I nibbled meekly from her proffered hand;
She was the sickle; I, poor I, the rake,
Coming behind her for her pretty sake
(But what prodigious mowing did we make.)
Love likes a gander, and adores a goose:
Her full lips pursed, the errant note to seize;
She played it quick, she played it light and loose;
My eyes, they dazzled at her flowing knees;
Her several parts could keep a pure repose,
Or one hip quiver with a mobile nose
(She moved in circles, and those circles moved.)
Let seed be grass, and grass turn into hay:
I’m martyr to a motion not my own;
What’s freedom for? To know eternity.
I swear she cast a shadow white as stone.
But who would count eternity in days?
These old bones live to learn her wanton ways:
(I measure time by how a body sways.)

5 SWEET PROPOSAL IDEAS! <3

Standard

In love? Want to propose him/her and don’t know how to, here are 5 different ways to do it-

  1. Do it the classic way, in a room filled with romantic music, dinner set on the table, which is cooked by you and candles lighting the room and just go up to your love, bend down on your knee and confess your love.
  2. Change your relationship status on facebook to ‘in a relationship’, then a box comes which asks you ‘with’ , add your beloved’s name and that person gets a notification for accepting it or declining it. (Well this is my personal favourite).
  3. If you guys use whatsapp, bbm, etc. just change your status to ‘(name), I love you, will you be mine <3’ , or whatever you want to say to him/her.
  4. When you guys are somewhere in public like a mall, a party, a pub, etc. just go on the stage or wherever you find a mike, get everyone’s attention and just say it. (DISCLAMER- ONLY IF YOUR MAN/LADY LIKES PUBLIC ATTENTION OR IT CAN CREATE A MAJOR PROBLEM).
  5. Make a card or write a letter and maybe even a poetry and pen your feelings down and give it to him/her. To receive something like this is very heart warming. (This is my second favourite).

Many people think that giving a gift while proposing is important, but I don’t think so. Yeah if it’s a marriage proposal then a ring would be nice but other than that there is no necessity of giving a gift, its the gesture that is important.

Many times girls think it is the guys’ job to propose, but I don’t think so. If you actually like a guy then why wait, be the one proposing! I guess its also exciting to be the one doing this. It would also amuse your man 😉 .

Why waiting go ahead and express your feelings.

“I have come to realise that your are the most important person in the world to me, and I wanted to know if you would consider… if you would do me the honour of becoming my wife”
― C. Allyn Pierson, Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister
