The Exquisite Pearls

by Madhulika Manoharan - Grade 5 (10 yrs) - from Dubai


Who are the tolerant tenderminds in the lights?

Who are the Mother Nature’s valiant knights?

Who are the brilliant blazers who shine so bright?

Who are the lamps in the dark bay who enhance our sight?

Who are the rainbows in the sky, bringing us something new from the sun?

Who are the creative minds, always springing high with fun?

Who are the extraordinary exemplars on whom high hopes you may pin?

Who are the cherishing champions born to win?  

Who possess excellent minds which are one of a kind?

Who bear a marvelous heart, which gives a good start?

Who have a roaring spirit which cannot be tamed?

Who have an infinity of compassionate deeds, which cannot be named?

Who are the dancing daffodils who cultivate the crops of determination?

Who harvest the fruits of success and pride for the nation?

Here comes the winner of the prize ..”THE PRICELESS PEARLS” – GIRLS !
