Ishika Singh, Grade 8
How nature is all around you and me,
With the blazing sun and glittering sky.
The long stretch of desert and the vast sea.
Explore it! Open your arms and fly high.
Listen to the sounds of the waterfall,
As it gushes down the river below.
Close your eyes and listen to the birds call,
And smell the sweet fragrance in the winds flow.
But sadly, as beautiful as it seems,
It is threatened by deforestation.
Nature's threat is far beyond our dreams,
But this is not near our satisfaction
So as long as our flora and fauna lives,
We should all appreciate what it gives.
