Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Education and riches both go hand in hand


The calf of high breed cow
Can be sold for a higher price!

The people will listen to the words
Of uneducated person, if he is rich!

The words of an educated person
Will not be respected, if he is poor!

Even though as if people listen,
And of course they don’t follow and forget!

It is similar to ploughing the slightly wet land,
But the ploughing will not be very deep!

So one should be educated;
He should become rich also by decent means!

Hence Education and riches,
Both go hand in hand and respected!

One should not be uneducated,
Everybody must have quality education!

One should not be poor,
Everybody should work hard and earn wealth!

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
