Flowing to Eternity – Siddhi Bhaskar

Serene and peaceful, calm and quiet,
She never makes a riot.
She gives and gives but never takes,
Except for water from the lakes.
                She flows into the sea,
                   Oh, she flows so free.
                     She glides down the slopes,
                   And grants people hopes!
From the hills to the planes,
She moves swiftly like a train.
She takes with her the mud,
And deposits it with a flood!
                She’s a river so pure,
                How much she has to endure!
                  She helps humanity move along,
                She hums a cheerful song

Siddhi Bhaskar, age 12, is an enthusiastic writer and her poems are about the world around her in all innocence and candor.
