My Tricolour – Poems by ETR Children
In today’s reading session we read stories and poetry about our struggle for freedom, the past, the hope, the present, and the future. It was great to discuss what the children think about ‘freedom’ and what the Tricolour means to them. The poetry did ignite the poets in them and they came up with these lovely lovely lines in a matter of minutes. Enjoy them. JAI HIND!
“Saffron is the rays of the sun set
White is the colour where the rainbows met
Green is the loveliest colour of all
Through summers, winter, spring, and fall.”
~ Roshni Deshpande (10 yrs)
“Saffron oh saffron the colour of our flag
Some people have the colours of their school bag
White oh white the best of all
As it remarks our seasons, summer, winter, spring, and fall
Blue is the sky from morning to evening
In winter, there is a lot of fevering
Green oh green we like it, it doesn’t matter if it is he and she
If foreigners look at the last colour,
and they will be embarassed, I’ll be as proud as proud can be.
~ Ramona (9 yrs)
“Saffron is the sun, it is bright and gay at summer days
White is my granny’s hair, I love to play with her hair.
Green is the greenery of India.
The chakra is the blue sky, and is right above her head. “
~ Garima (7 yrs)
