National Farmer’s Day: Poems

Life without food,
Is like a tree without roots.
Life without food,
Is like a bad dream come true
Food comes from farms,
These farms make our country charm,
Our country’s pride is hidden in farms,
But the growing population rings an alarm
Farmers try their best to cultivate more,
For lost ships to become a sea shore,
These efforts will not be in vain,
One day the dry land will also have rain!
THANKS to farmers for growing food!
THANKS to farmers for giving our life tree roots!
By Nishitha
