I’ve begun my tryst with the little ones,
It’s lovely to be amongst my little buns,

I love the way they call out to me,
In a loud shrill sing-song melody,

Yesterday was special in many ways,
It was a first in all these days,
The little champ volunteered to answer,
Which itself was a definite acer,

Yesterday had another surprise in store,
The children were invited to a class on another floor,
The children could barely contain their excitement,
And quickly finished their lunch much to our amazement,

As they tiptoed to the class on the other floor,
You could hear the animated whispers grow,

The children gathered to celebrate rakhi,
Learned why it is celebrated, eat laddus and just be merry!
