Funny cat and rat poem for kids

Once there was a cat named Dumbo,
And his best friend was a rat named Tumbo.
Dumbo and Tumbo went in the same school,
And they loved, making others fool.

One day Tumbo got a sleeping bag,
He thought it was a special sack.
He quickly went inside it,
And made himself comfortably fit.
That sleeping bag belonged to a naughty boy,
Who never studied and always played with his toy.
As soon as the boy got inside the bag,
He felt a sense of tickle and sudden wag.
He jumped out of it and burst into tear,
Tumbo muddled from inside the bag in utter fear.

Dumbo was also, not too be taken light,
He was an expert in quarrel and fight.
One morning he silently drank a glass of creamy milk,
Then draped himself in a super red silk.
When an old lady scolded him,
He growled at her from balcony brim.

They were also skilled in disturbing their neighbors.
But they were good at their heart however.

One day they saw a child at the roadside,
Helpless, crying and no one to guide.
They felt pity and decided to stay beside him,
Unless somebody comes and help him.
Two days passed by but no one came,
They became his guardian and acted the same.
Food, clothing and water they arranged for the child,
They provided all his needs and gave a perfect guide.
Then one day came a woman and took the child in her arms,
Kissing, patting and hugging the little one, which made them dumb.
The little child had found her mother,
This is the biggest joy than any other.
That very sight moved their heart,
They wept silently but kept their mouth shut.
From that day they promised not to disturb other,
Nor they will play prank further.

Konark Sun Temple

                                            copyright© shonima burman

Situated in the state of Odisha,
It still glorifies India's ancient era.
Also called Black Pagoda,
It was supposedly built by King Narasimhadeva.
It was dedicated to the Sun God Surya,
Being one of the wonders of India.
Built in the form of a gigantic chariot,
It's exquisite stone sculptures captivate us a lot.
Unfortunately the main sanctum collapsed,
And it's exact reason is still in dark.
Renovations are periodically done to keep it upright,
The temple is an UNESCO World Heritage Site!

Durga Puja

copyright© shonima burman

The blue sky with wispy clouds,
And the birds singing aloud,
The autumn season inviting Goddess Durga,
With happiness followed by a five-days Puja.
The milky white beauty of the ''kaash phool'',
Creating a perfect ambiance of the festival to it's full.
The Goddess finally arrives,
To shower her blessings on our lives.
She is represented in the form of killing a devil,
And it's our belief that she drives away all the evils.
From Sasthi followed by Saptami, Ashtami and Nabami,
The idol of the Goddess is finally immersed in Ganga on Dashami.
The last day is followed by sharing sweets,
And the people awaits another long year for her to arrive.

Oh Calcutta

                                         copyright© shonima burman

Situated on the bank of Hooghly River,
This ''City Of Joy'' is full of wonder.
From ancient monuments to modern architecture,
The city flourishes with astonishing sculptures.
Capital of the Indian state of West Bengal,
The city of Calcutta warmly invites one and all.
Once formed by combining three villages,
Kalikata, Gobindapur and Sutanuti down the ages.
Today it is one of the biggest metropolitan city,
Being enriched in culture and diversity.
Kolkata is its modern name,
Yet it's ancient glamour remains all the same.
I am really proud to be a Calcuttan,
As I am proud to be an Indian.

My Sweet Mom

                                        copyright© shonima burman

Bright, beautiful and strong,
She is my sweet mom.
Dark is her eyes and bright is her complexion,
Her long flowing hair captures everybody's attention.
Loving, caring and flawless at her duty,
She is the perfect Indian beauty.
She nurtured me with immense love and care,
And always protected me from every evil and unfair.
I learned to appreciate this life from her,
Mom, you are just superb and I love you forever.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

                                      copyright© shonima burman


Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,
I wonder why you are so far?
You shine brightly every night,
Don't you feel sleepy for a while?
You are a studded gem on the black sky,
And a perfect guide on the ocean high.
You are so simple and blissful,
What makes you so beautiful?
Twinkle twinkle my little star,
Will you ever come down to earth from so far?

Night Owl

                                           copyright© shonima burman

In the deep darkness of night,
These nocturnal birds complete their silent flight.
With a flat face and a forward facing eyes,
They can rotate their head and neck upto 270 degrees.
Despite having binocular vision,
Their eyes are completely immobile in action.
Ear tufts are used for camouflage and also to show aggression,
These birds are shrewd and quick in predation.
With ears set asymmetrically on their skull,
These carnivorous birds have their coloration mostly dull.
Mainly live on eating insects and small rodents,
They constitute an important part of the ecosystem.
They create a wide variety of vocalization,
Truly, they are an unique wonder of God's creation!

Pink Rose

copyright© shonima burman

When I woke up in the morning,
I found something astonishing!
A beautiful pink rose in my garden
Aroused happiness in me all of a sudden.
The petals were soft and tender,
The young green stems were long and slender.
Swayed in the soft breeze,
And silently stole all other beauties.
I couldn't turn away my eyes from it,
Because it's my pink rose, and I love it.

Mars

                                            copyright© shonima burman

Suddenly the tallest mountain set on fire,
And I suddenly leaped three times higher,
Oh God, I wondered ''Is this your wrath''?
But wait, wait, I guessed that was not Earth!
There was a beautiful sunrise,
But the sun was half of it's size.
Barren yet beautiful, red yet dull,
Perhaps existence of life was also null.
I could not believe my own eyes,
Oh,God, that was Mars to my surprise!
But how did I come here?
My mind stopped working in utter fear.
Suddenly a martian man stood by my side,
And observed me in utter surprise.
Then he started nodding his head,
His whole body seemed to be painted in red.
Tears started rolling down my cheeks,
Being sure that I was in high risk.
Minutes within his fellows joined him,
And they talked in their own language as it seemed.
Together they leaped three times,
And sung a song similar to our rhymes.
At this point they seemed harmless,
And they tried to make me their friend I guess.
I also nodded my head and leaped three times,
And tried to sing a song in the form of rhyme.
It worked magically and I became their friend,
Through gestures, nodding we interacted till the end.
We came to know each other,
And we had fun altogether.
Now it was time for me to return to Earth,
Where everybody was eagerly waiting for my birth.
