Greetings To USA from India


To USA from India 

Greetings on your 235th Independence Day

You move ahead and move a little faster than before,

Your goals are still far ahead my friend,

Keep moving, even if you find the roads,

Not as smooth as it used to be in the past.

Just choose your new goals and friends carefully, and 

Be careful in selecting new Goals, 

Be very careful from those my friend,

Who may deceive or may overtake your good efforts,

While marching along with you on your way.

Some in this world still believe that everything is fare in War,

But unfortunately they do not believe               in Love at all.

You have to do lot many things my friend,

While shaping the dreams of your people, and

Sharing your love and goodwill with those,

Who are really your well wishers and friends, but may be they are not 

Walking with you,  every time you move on a new road. 

You have yet to win the hearts of many more,

Not by the powers of guns and your mighty force,

But by the power of freedom, Love and humanity and 

The will to save this beautiful Earth.

These efforts would ultimately set aside, everything else, and 

Would make your country not only prosperous and big. 

But a Great Nation in true senses, my friend.

On this wonderful great day 4th July,

We sincerely give you our Good Wishes and Greetings to you,

O’ My friend, USA.

On behalf of the peace loving people of my country India.

Kanpur India 4th July 2011

Greeting of 4th July to all my Poetry Soup friends.

I am posting this poem from a cyber café due to phone line problem.

    Rav, Had I read this on the 4th of July I would have been balling my eyes level of patriotism is exceedingly high on July the 4th. I wish the rest of the world shared your kind opinion of our country...we do have a heart...we also have those who exploit our kindness as well. There is much more I would like to say but this is not the forum. Continue to write your heart. You are refreshing indeed. Gwendolen (the poets from India are all sooo kind!)

    Thank you for the lovely greeting. You offer some good advise in this poem. By extending our hands like you have through your words, there is hope for the world. When nations become friends and foster understanding, there is less chance of war. Insightful piece. Thank you for sharing it and for your kind comment. Karen

    Hon, I must have missed this earlier, but your portrait of the U.S. gave me a warm feeling. We are always there when other nations are struck by catastrophe, but it seems we have many enemies. Perhaps it's because we are seen as interfering in the governing of other nations. It's wonderful to know we have India as a much-needed ally. Blessings to you, Ravindra! Love, Carolyn
