A for apple
shout the children in a babble
jumping on the table.
Being a song
has been there for long
the alphabet song.
Fruits have colours
the colour of lemon
so charming and yellow,
that of the juicy orange
so flaming and orange
well, that be in the name
so cute and Royal
with the strawberries
the colour goes missing
and where comes the straw
the bright apples
with their healthy red
a display of robustness
along with the green ones
which show a thrive
not withholding the mango
so green when unripe
and orangish yellow when ripe
the colours restrain not only with fruits
extend to the vegetables too,
with beetroots having a bloody tinge
and carrots give out a pleasant complexion
the eggplants propose a violetish shade
go the lady’s finger and chillies in shiny green
I can go with the shades and fades
anyway eating them would enhance your complexion
yes, that is why the fruits and vegetables are made so
The pictures of me when young
looking very robust and strong
smiling with no worries at all
cherubic and chubby in all
eyes glittering with a twinkle
the skin showing no wrinkles
the thoughts very much clear
the outlook was none of fear
moving with ease all around
spreading happiness in rounds
was an apple of my mother’s eye
though a little reserved and a bit shy
I lived like a princess in the household
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
goes the maxim with an emphatic stress
many fruits claim the same way
as they also have nutrition in excess.
Fruits do give adequate vitamins in the fray
while they are new and deliciously fresh
They release a healthy growth on the way
when consumed in right proportional plus.
Every fruit has a lovely taste for sure
Some are sweet and mouth-watering to eat
others are sour but still a delight for ever.
Few are though bitter still tasty beyond beat.
Not apple alone is healthy say the rest in chorus
With pears and grapes claiming the top rank
while mango and tropical fruits call with an arouse
plums and peaches speak out in a voice a bit tanked
the lesser known ones mangostin and durian give a chose
being liked by a few and detested by many keeping away from the bank
With their voices heard with a bang and with a whisper altogether
one can conclude that the maxim is just a careless include.
A for apple points out the little girl in cheer
B for ball shouts another little one in gear.
So goes the identification of alphabets without fear.
The child learns the language as years fold.
Mastering the language she achieves a status gold.
Her observations bring out a lively union.
while apple and ball fall back into the oblivion.
Christ is held in high esteem by Christians with no substitution.
Shiva holds the sway over the Hindus of Saivite tradition.
Vishnu adds fervour to an Hindu sect of another definition.
Hinduism abounds in infinite nomenclature.
Mohamed is the renowned prophet of Islamic culture
Buddha is the originator of Buddhism.
Religions find their way assuring multi fold ism
Apple and ball make the child to recognise letters
as they are necessary for the young mind to rise above fetters.
Facilitating a learning with a skill to analyse better.
Holy scriptures make Man to derive truth from the tenets
The idols are like patrolling sergeants reprimanding the erring tenants.
They provide him with a comprehensive enrichment in the strike.
Singing rhymes and hymns deliver grace to child and Man alike
As alphabets form the basis of language in general
idols personify “Truth” in specific annals
As language clads the ideas with links careful
truth discovers the ideals through distinctions lawful
Knowledge calls for dedication and sincerity
as truth eulogizes the righteous and shuns infidelity.
So it goes “Truth” is religion and God is “Truth”.
