ADVENTURE – UNIT-9
Listen, recite and enjoy:
Together, we walk and make moves
No one knows, how far is the top
To the biting cold, hands in gloves
For rocks below, feet after feet tap.
No thought of yesterday or tomorrow
For steps rise and fall, chill in the marrow
Out in the whistling wind, with sole sore
Can’t stop, climbing more and more.
New words :
biting cold : severe cold, ತೀವ್ರ ಚಳಿ
marrow : a soft thing in the centre of bones, ಮಜ್ಜೆ (ಅಸ್ತಿಮಜ್ಜೆ)
sore : wound because of infection, ಗಾಯದಿಂದಾಗಿ ವೇದನೆ ಪಡು
