The blessings of nature

With the blessings of nature
The April New Year
Has arrived on the scene,
With the golden grain
Filling the barns.
The fruit trees dazzle
With multi-coloured fruits;
Beautiful flowers of sweet fragrance
Are a soothing balm to the eye,
Pretty birds of various hues
Chirp and fly with free music.

The singing star, the cuckoo bird,
Proudly sings its tune;
The proud Erabadu with big red flowers
With its red carpet below
And the red canopy overhead
Proudly dances with the wind.

Families get together
Dine and enjoy together,
Respecting elders
Renewing good morals,
The swing is on full swing
The rabana echoes with sweet music.
There’s enjoyment and togetherness.

Let this not be
For a single week
But throughout the year!
May the golden April Sun
Bring eternal peace to our Motherland.
