Little mouse

A little mouse came one day, From a land so poor and far away, It came to live in my house, This tiny, little, baby mouse!

My birthday

Hey July 20… when will you come?

I’ve been waiting for you since long!

Please come soon, please come soon, Before the next full moon!

You are an important date for me, I am waiting for you desperately, I can’t even eat properly, I’ve planned a lot of things for this date, More than everything, one could think of!

I have also made the guests’ list, Now you are here with me… I am extremely excited, Yes, July 20th is my birthday, I have been celebrating it with My loves ones!

I’m wearing a pretty pink frock, With beautiful long socks, And a splendid tiara on my head, In which beautiful red stones are carved, And in my neck, I’m wearing a lovely locket, And in my wrists, two nice bracelets! From top to toe, I’m looking very cute, My best friend gave me a flute, There are a lot of presents I received, It’s my birthday, I am very pleased!

The seasons’ song

The seasons of the year, The seasons of the year, In autumn, Red, yellow, orange and brown Leaves were falling down; Leaves were falling down.

In winter, Cold and chilly wind was going round, Round and round the town.

In spring, Red, yellow, white and pink Roses were blooming on the ground.

The seasons of the year, The seasons of the year.

In summer, The hot sun was worrying the town And making children brown!

The seasons of the year, The seasons of the year.

A rainy day

It was a hot day of July, Everyone was praying for rain.

Suddenly I saw a dark cloud in the sky, I wore my shorts And jumped in the street; It rained heavily, And continued for three hours, After the rain, A beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky; It was a lovely and beautiful day, I was happy to enjoy rain that day.

My perfect friend

My perfect friend is kind, My perfect friend has an intelligent mind, My perfect friend knows when I am sad, My perfect friend isn’t scared when I get mad!

My perfect friend makes me smile, My perfect friend, for me, would run a mile, My perfect friend is sweet at heart, My perfect friend is also smart!

Ramazan has arrived, Peace is everywhere, Everyone feels thirsty, Rich or poor, All flock to the markets, Putting iftar stuff in baskets, Smile is on their faces, Fasting is a blessing, That doubles our joy in Eid!

Faryal Gul, 13 years, Karachi


Ramazan is here, I want to advise you, dear, Practise fasting with care, Hot days, you will have to bear, My advice, you must hear.
