Come spring, the hearts blossom by redeeming powers, Like young buds blooming into beautiful flowers, Like lonely drops becoming lovely pearls, Like hair of Apsara with wavy curls,

Come spring the hearts blossom by redeeming powers,

Like young buds blooming into beautiful flowers,

Like lonely drops becoming lovely pearls,

Like hair of Apsara with wavy curls,

Amazing crafts on lands unfold, stretched for miles,

As sky draws rainbows, bringing back smiles,

Fluids of life slake withered lips of a barren sphere,

It's all for you, for you to admire and revere,

Cherish eternal bounties of Mother Nature,

Spread over horizon, save with a prayer,

That when you drive, drive with care,

For there are children playing outside their homes,

Having no fears, no worries and no qualms,

Value the beauty of Nature in all her fairness,

Bestowed on all alike in towns and wilderness,

From flora to fauna from one species to another,

She sees us all fairly now and forever,

May we treat creatures of Nature like our own children,

Not dwelling among us yet they live besides for certain,

That they have same rights as we do be advised,

For they lived here long before we arrived,

May we show respect and look out for them while we drive,

So we graciously let them play, survive and thrive,

Do not kill them for they are like our own children,

Maybe we never saw it that way for a reason,

We the humans are destined to rise in life,

May we stand together to bring an end to this strife,

Mother Nature is so kind, confers countless favors,

Why are children run over by reckless drivers,

The pain is less for they are not humans as we believe,

But are we right in all that we perceive,

We have not risen to see them but as our own,

Protecting lives of others is a virtue well known,

Grow to a point where you see it all as a fair game,

Where actors come, play their roles while some earn fame,

Take an earnest pledge that you will drive with care,

To avoid an awful loss that you cannot bear,

The loss of a child is a tragedy unendurable,

The Children be they ours or theirs, are loveable,

But those who cannot speak yet they do,

In their silent echo of despair feeling blue,

I do hear their lifeless bodies whispering a thing,

The only thought that makes me despise spring,

Let us drive with our eyes on the road at all time,

We must not kill a child be it yours, theirs or mine,

For sure the Animals are the Children of Nature,

They are our neighbors so let it be our gesture,

That good people care for their neighbors whosoever they are,

For you Animals are our neighbors, and we will treat you on a par.

Cheers!

We must learn to coexist on a shared Planet!
