Bindya was happy as a lark
High spirited with a smile
That shone as bright as the
Sunshine bursting from the skies
Her steps were quick
But she paused long enough
To throw a coin
In the pool of water in her path
This she used as her make believe wishing well
"What a lovely day"
She called out in a cheerful, melodious voice
Caring not, who stared at her quirky behavior
She rocked to the beat of the music
Blaring in her ears
The deafening sound was no bother
She beckoned and nodded
To those who looked her way
"Join me" she shouted
"Recharge your spirits"
As she cantered along
There joining her was a line of
She looked back and her face lit up
"That's the power of a smile"
As she skipped and bounced
Leading the way in a cheerful voice
She and her followers sang
To their hearts content
"Oh wonderful and glorious world
I will always embrace you"
