a poem by Mabel Annie Chacko

God gave life to the flowers,
And coloured them with care,
That the earth maybe a pretty place
For children everywhere.

Let the world be better, brighter,
For your having trod its way,
Scatter the seeds of love and kindness,
Ere the Sun goes down today.

The little plants will grow to bear…
Abundant fruits some day;
If only we can take care of
The day that is Today!

Time hastens; so do today
Whatever kindly deeds you may;
For, the bloom of a rose passes quickly away,
And the pride of the butterfly dies in a day.
