A nation whose youth are endowed
With Self as strong and hard as steel:
No need of piercing swords in war
Such people brave can ever feel.
The world of Pleiades and the Moon
By natural laws is chained and bound
Whereas the world in which you dwell
Owns insight, will and mind much sound.
What do the quivering waves imply,
Save enormous zeal and zest for quest?
What lies concealed in mother shell
Is gift of God Who knows it best.
The hawk is never tired of flight,
Does not drop gasping on the ground
If unwearied it remains on wings,
From hunters' dread is safe and sound.
