The Clock of Life
The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour
To lose one’s wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one’s health is more,
To lose one’s soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.
Today only is our own.
So live, love and toil with a will.
For the clock may soon be still.
– Robert H. Smith

The Naughty Onion
Gopu went to the market. He bought a kilo of onions from the vegetable seller. Some were big, some were small, some were really tiny, some were pink, some were red and some were almost white. He put them in a large paper packet and kept them in a corner on the floor.
He was very tired. Knowing that nobody was at home, he went to the living room, sat on a sofa, switched on the air conditioner and soon fell asleep.
There was one naughty pink onion in the packet. He told the other onions to jump out of the packet. Some went under the cupboard, some went into a corner, and some hid behind the dustbin. Oh! They went everywhere. The paper packet was soon empty. Then it was time for dinner. Gopu came into the kitchen to cook food.
“Oh, dear! Where have all the onions gone?” cried Gopu. He looked everywhere but he couldn’t find them. Suddenly he heard a soft voice, “Gopu I’m here, find me”. The voice came from a pot. He looked inside. He found a large pink onion sitting inside happily. Soon he heard other voices from the dustbin, the oven and all over the kitchen. Gopu took a long time collecting all the onions. That day dinner was really late. It was all because of the naughty onions.
