Listen as you read...

Little lamp was shining bright

On a porch, Diwali night.

Smiling at the happy street,

Children playing on their feet.


She saw the vendor of the store.

Selling sweets and snacks galore.

Every kind of tasty treat

Crunchy munchy, salty sweet.

Into the air the lantern blew

Little lamps up they flew

In the darkness of the night

Lifting spirits high and bright.


People turned to greet each other

Time to meet friend and brother.

Giving thanks for all they had

Yummy food makes hearts glad.


“Why so bright little lamp?”

Asked a squirrel on the ramp.

“To end darkness with my light.

I shine bright through the night!”


Hey kids, do you know that the festival of lights Diwali is celebrated to mark the victory of good over evil and to remind us to destroy the darkness in our lives with the light of knowledge. Happy Diwali to everyone!
