Man wonders over the restless sea.....the flowing waters.........
the sight of the sky......and forgets that of all wonders,
'man himself is the most wonderful'. -St.Augustine
Hey! you 'Clever man' of this World,
time had given in your hands most precious pearl.
You kept it in your crown......
it brought to you - great glory.
You kept it in your finger ring....
It brought to you - unique fame.
When people came to know your name....
and about' the pearl', that in your life came..!!
You didn't want it, to be praised....
and wished only your name should be raised.
You threw away that, 'Pearl' on wet slanting sand.....
where...it rolled down to the end,
in small pond of peaceful water it was sent.....
yet...it did not drown but floated around...
..silently... shed her tears and made no sound.
There came the' Pleasant moon' that, night.....
..found that its 'His Pearl'and gave his 'Light'.
Thus,says the moon to his girl....
"Hey ! you !! My Precious Pearl....!
we are made for each other....
..though never will we meet....
I will be here for you....
to make you smile and greet....!!
You are so...precious to my Heart....
abide with me and have a pleasant sleep."
