Fascinating colour pencils
To brighten up the plain drawing sheets,
Learning to scribble, and writing alphabets, but
Trying to keep the note books neat!
Watching the birds and flowers
While playing with friends in the park;
Chasing away the naughty squirrels,
Back to their burrows in the tree bark.
Bursting the funny bubble wraps,
Unfurling the colourful ribbons and reels of threads,
Recitation of numerous nursery rhymes, aloud,
And, paying attention to the story books being read.
All these things, and many more,-Dr. Shilpa Chakrabarti
Take me down the memory lane;
The golden days of my childhood flash across
My room’s coloured window pane.
