There he is plowing his field

The  early morning sun beating down on his back

Unschooled

Caring nothing for so called "Education"

Cannot read nor write

With a little smattering of arithmetic

Living only within the confines of his village

Yet threre is a serenity  and contentment

On his lined weather beaten face

When asked how he can be so happy

In such poverty

He replied that he did not know what

Poverty means !
