Sometimes,we seem to miss out the simple lessons in life and so Lesson Six is  a story poem which reminds us the true meaning of Friendship.


Friendship must be with equals,

my little friend said.

Oh no you are wrong, I replied

A friend is a friend big or small

And a friend in need is a friend indeed

All my theory was of no avail,

off we went to my grandpa

He said, we will discuss later,

but should listen to a story instead

“There lived in a jungle,

A deer, a crow and a mouse

All were good friends thick and fast.

One day a hunter came along,

and Deer was caught

among animals big and small

The crow informed the mouse

who used its sharp teeth to good cause

Meanwhile the crow asked the deer

to lie still as if dead

and it began to pick its head

The hunter thought the deer is dead

and removed the net

Deer became free and thanked its friends

but the crow and mouse said,

It’s nothing, remember we are friends” 

Thus grandpa finished the story

Later my little friend said,

Grandpa I have learned a lesson

Among friends there is no big and small.

I see, then, that a kind of faith prevails;

gentleness is moulded still by words

The verse,

I see, then, that a kind of faith prevails;

Your gentleness is moulded still by words.

And a special thanks to my Uncle for such a lovely theme 🙂
