Twinkle,twinkle Nikhil star,
How you kindle life of all!
With a smile of million stars,
Like a lovely water fall. 1
Splashing smiles, you crossed a mile
Now wants to fly like a butterfly,
Mount a cloud to catch the moon,
Wonder why a moon wants another moon! 2
Hums like a bee and quacks like a duck
Coos like a dove and swings like my luck
Laughter and smiles, mischief and babbles
In tons and tons, this rising sun 3
Thatha falls when Nikhil pulls
Nikhil laughs when thatha falls
And thatha calls for nikhils’s hand
They roll and roll and laugh and laugh. 4
Fall is fun, for the little one;
And he bounces like a rubber ball;
Fall is fall for the older one.
He moans and naps and worries all 5
Nikhil claps,“ tha, thatha, tha”
Thatha rises, “ha,ha, ha”
“Fall is fun, I know” he blabs;
All is well, if Nikhil claps. 6
This short poem was composed for the invitation card for my grand son Nikhil’s first birthday, as desired by my daughter-in-law, Meghana

Dear happy grand father,
That was a very nice poem and Nikhil is very lucky to have poet as his grand father. May Sri Raama bless you, Meghna Nikil and other members of your family.

A nice gift to all of us.
