Glory in the flower - Wordsworth

Came across this and thought of sharing. From “Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood” by William Wordsworth.

What though the radiance which was once so bright

Be now for ever taken from my sight,

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind;

In the primal sympathy

Which having been must ever be;

In the soothing thoughts that spring

Out of human suffering;

In the faith that looks through death,

In years that bring the philosophic mind.

The new Satyam nursery rhyme

Got 2 rhymes in my mail about the Satyam scandal. I got inspired to make a third one.

2 rhymes in the mail:

Raju Raju sat on a wall
Raju Raju had a great fall
Balance sheet died
Shareholders cried
Raju Raju made a fraud

Raju Raju
Yes baba
Cheating us
No baba
Telling Lies
No baba
Open the balance sheet

My composition (original):

Rock a bye investor

On the Satyam stock top

When the Maytas deal breaks

The exchange will rock

When the fraud breaks

The Satyam will fall

Down will come investor

Raju and all
