From Ayushi

Ayushi Rice Ceremony

Seven months on milk
I now crave the taste of rice
And, sprinkled with your blessings
What could be more nice?

My tiny self is crawling
Still waiting to walk
My grandparents will be over
To give your doors a knock.

Saturday afternoon
Come one, come all
I will leave milk for rice
And we will all have a ball.
