Leave a Comment

There were three friends: Laura,candy and jennifer.Laura and candy were proud of their beauty.One day, at the park they started talking about their beauty.Soon, it became an argument.They were arguing about whose hands were more beautiful.Jennifer was quiet.She was not proud  as she thought that she was very ordinary to look at.

When the argument about beautiful hands went on, Jennifer hide her hands which had become rough from hard work at the farm.

Her father had a farm and she used to help him everyday.

An old lady was sitting on a bench near to them.She overhead their argument.When the three friends got up to go from the park, the old lady got up too.She had a very heavy basket with her.Laura and candy did not pay any attention to her.Jennifer picked up the heavy basket and helped the old lady to cross the road in front of the park.The other two girls walked behind.

The old lady stopped after crossing the road.She said," Do you know whose hands are most beautiful ? ".The girls were impatient to know."This girl who helped me to carry my basket has the most beautiful hands".

  Are yout hands beautiful? Remember, only those hands that do kind deeds are beautiful.

While a man was polishing his new car, his four year old son picked a stone and scratched the line on the side of the car. In a fet of anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it in many times, not realizing he was using wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his finger due to mulitiple fractures. When the child saw his father with painful eyes he asked "Dad when will my finger gro back"? Man was so hurt and speechless.

He went back to the car and kiched it many times. Devarted by his own actions,litting in front of the car,he looked at the scratcher,his son had made. The child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD' anger and love has no limits.

"Things are to be wed and people are to be loved,but the problem in todays world is that. People are used and things are loved....."

Little Things

Leave a Comment
Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean.
And the beauteous land.

And the little moments,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.

So our little errors
Lead the soul away,
From the paths of virtue
Into sin to stray.

Little deads of kindness,
Little words of love,
Make our earth an Eden,
Like the heaven above.

(A poem by Julia A. Carney)

The Two Goats

Leave a Comment

There was a bridge across a river. Namu, the goat, wanted to cross it. He walked up to the middle of the bridge and met another goat Tapu, coming grom the other side.

Namu : Move and let me pass.
Tapu : No, I want to cross the bridge first

Namu : I came here before you.
Tapu : I reached at the same time.

Namu : Move or I will push you with my horns.
Tapu : My horns are big and sharp. I can push you too.

Namu: We will see that.Let us fight and decide who is stronger.

The two goats start fighting with each other. They almost fall down from the bridge.

Tapu : We will die if we fall from down the bridge.
Namu : But we cannot cross together. The bridge is very narrow.

Tapu : I have an idea. Let me lie down and you can jump over me.
Namu : That is a great idea.

Tapu lies down on the bridge and Namu jumps over him and goes to the other side. Tapu gets up and crosses over too

The Four Seasons

Leave a Comment
The seasons change
Four times a year
From spring to winter
They appear

Spring is wet
The flower grow
The sun appears
And melts the snow.

Summer is hot
It's full of sun
There is no school
It's lot of fun.

Autumn is cool
The leaves fall down
It rains a lot
All over the town.

Winter is cold
The snowflakes fall
We skate and ski
And make snowballs.

The season change
From sun to snow
And that is all
You need to know!

The arrow

Leave a Comment
"I shot an arrow into the air,
 It fell to earth, I knew not where;
 For,so swiftly it flew, the sight
 Could not follow it in its flight.

 I breathed a song into the air,
 It fell to earth, I knew not where;
 For who has sight so keen and strong,
 That it can follow the flight of song ?

 Long, Long afterward, in an oak
 I found the arrow, still unbroke;
 And the song, from beginning to end,
 I found again in the heart of a friend".

Laugh at it

Leave a Comment
"When you hear the merry rain
  Patter at the window-pane,
 Think 'twill soon be fine again;
 So laugh at it !

 If you chance to tumble down,
Though you bump your little crown,
Never cry or pout or frown,
Just laugh at it !

 When the sum is hard to do,
 Rub it out and try a new;
 When you get the answer true
 You'll laugh at it !

Kitty's Bedtime Prayer

Leave a Comment
"Now I lay down to sleep,
 I pray this cushy life to keep.
 I pray for toys that look like mice,
 And sofa cushions,soft and nice.

 For grocery bags where I can hide,
 Just like a tiger,crouched inside !
 I pray for gourmet nice to scratch my back.

 For window sills all warm and bright,
 For shadows to explore at night.
 I pray I'll always stay real cool,
 And keep the secret feline rule.

 To never tell a human that...
 The world is really ruled by cats!

Invention Of Wheel

Leave a Comment
Before the wheel was made, people walked to reach places.They had to carry their things on their shoulders.Sometimes they  used animals to carry things.Later on, they made sledges which were pulled both by man and animals.They also made rafts that moved on water.

  While moving in the jungles, early humans noticed that round objects such as logs of wood rolled down slopes easily.So they fixed logs under their sledges, and found it was a little easier to carry them.

  Then they tied the slices of wood to the sledge.Now the task of pulling things was easier for them.These slices of wood were the first wheels made by man
