Words of wisdom 4


Pledge not your gold better to be sold
Never run away from problems to face
If intelligent never purchase on credit
Avoid friendship always with fools

Walk not all alone in unknown places
Take not liberty for dining with enemies
Greed not for belongings other than yours
Talk not anything that hurts and pains others

Lotus blooms by the rays of Sun
When taken out from water
the same rays make it wither away
It is the place that matters not anything else

Never serve a master who finds
faults in all that you do as is your
Position that of a frog living under the
Hood of a cobra with constant fear

A Child refuses milk that is offered with love
Under threat prepared to drink even poison
Love pampers and affection misfires
Fear of punishment instills discipline

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
