Mohini Sharda (Children's World)

Mohini Sharda
Quiet sentinels stand tall
In the dark night
Stretching their long,longing limbs
Till Queen Diana appears
In her shiny crystal chariot
Piercing the night’s dark shroud
Waking the slumberous clouds
In shadows, trembling, tremulous
A piper pipes a song anew
About goldy locks, dark eyed fairy
Who lived in a house along the prairie
Lil Angels
Some are frail in frame
Others small in size
Those tiny little angels
Have milky smiles
Some are joyous
Others squeak in glee
As they hop around
They bring one close to divinity
I see in them a paradise of innocence pure
That for a mortal is recompense sure 
My Father-My Hero
My father stands
In his starched stiff olive greens
The brass on his shoulder, is our pride
The medals adorning his proud, wide chest
He takes them in his stride
I salute his motto:
‘The welfare of the nation comes first, everywhere, every time.’
‘My own welfare comes last, everywhere, everytime.’
Be it the baking heat
Of a merciless desert son
Or the icy glaciers of bone chilling Siachin
My hero stands ram-rod erect
In dedicated loyalty to the nation
