Rhymes for kids

Poetry quenches everyone’s thirst for enjoyment, but the most benefitted of the lot are kids. Even before kids get to nursery, the singing of

r

makes them eat their food, play around and sleep too. They donot generally have a meaning but have a strong rhyme to be composed into song for children to enjoy it. Here is one of their favorites for you:

 

This old man, he plays one
He plays knick knack on my thumb
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays two
He plays knick knack on my shoe
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays three
He plays knick knack on my knee
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays four
He plays knick knack on my door
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays five
Don’t play knick knack on that hive
With a knick knack paddy wack 
Give a dog a bone
This old man comes rolling home

Hold,hold,hold

I can be this,
or i can be that
guess what i have been
on this Halloween!!

Diwali Hoooo

diwali sweets

Its time, its time,
Hearty welcome
Please join the line,
for objection is seldom
 
Hearts filled with delight,
as Diwali goodies come
Tummies tucked so tight,
to have the yummys wholesome
 
Ladoo, Barfi, Pedha,
and Dry fruits of wide range
Tired of saying ‘thoda thoda ’
as greetings exchanged
 
By the end of the season,
you sure put up mass
And then find every reason,
for a stringent weight loss
 
And ofcourse the vibrant patakas
Lit by the lamps so bright
Fills with Dhoom dhamaka
Marking the end of demons’ fight

wasn’t her name at all,

only her married name.

I listened hard

till I heard

that the same…
