The River – by Nikhil Idiculla
This is a poem written by Nikhil, my nephew who is about 8 years old. Besides being an intelligent kid who loves to read and play, he’s an awesome big brother to the impish 2 1/2 year old Sanjana.
It squiggles and wriggles
And houses many fish
And at dawn and dusk
It reflects the sun
It makes the land around it fertile
That so many plants can grow
But if you throw any old toy or shoe
You can cause a lot of woe
Be careful and take care of rivers
It is a very precious thing
If we let anyone spoil the river
It can affect the whole world!!!
