Cartoons and Poems on Ahimsa
Many ants change their anthill.
They are so easy to kill.
I cover them with small chairs,
Under which they pass still!
Spider make her web like cave.
Up to which moths' lives gave!
I called my lovely daughter,
Quickly break the web to save!
I stay close to stream without fishing,
Live in mountain without door opening,
I do not like to stop those singing birds,
Or trouble the fish which are lovely swimming!
One fish escapes from net,
Most others have been caught.
I had been in a war;
It makes me so upset.
Fish are welcomed by duckweed,
And farewelled by the pure wave.
Now I'd like to send you free--
May every being so saved!
I have a cock with nice crown.
Artist liked it; it was drawn.
I told it, "Don't make noise,
Unless once, to herald dawn."
I sit alone under the willow,
On which I find a friend-like sparrow.
Her beautiful sound makes sweet song.
She's like an Indian bird without sorrow.
I almost forgot spring has passed.
Once I saw some sparrows fly across.
They did know how to make their good nest,
Brought flowers with that mud and grass.
Dog carefully guards door.
Gets a little food so poor.
We must do our work like it.
Lest we will be a rude boor.
Look! The grass is green and good.
I like them in my merry mood!
Though my family is so poor,
To animals I give my food!
To my house the bird nest was not so near.
I asked them to change; they need not have fear.
They said, "Persons like to catch us in their cage,
It's only you who've been so meek and dear!"
Swallow stays at your pillow.
You treat her as your fellow.
Because your mind is so kind,
Widely expands but not narrow!
A little butterfly's grave,
With some stones boys pave.
It is not just play,
But love to engrave!
A pet our mind can influence!
Little flute makes ox as audience.
It was said, "Best music has caused
Dragon and Phoenix fly and dance!"
