The Himalayas have a majestic beauty
Saving its glory should be everyone’s duty
The Himalayas are our pride
It’s admirable from every side

We need to keep it as a source of pure water
Not only for you, but for your son and daughter
The Himalayas are a popular tourist destination
But to maintain this, we need to take some action

The Himalayas are very vast
But I’m not sure how long it will last?
To protect it from increasing pollution
Urgently, we need to seek a solution

The effects of global warming will be a devastation
It will ruin all of the Himalayas’ fascination
Melting snow will not only cause flooding locally
Rather, this problem will affect more globally

This will also lead to rapid erosion, naturally
And tiny islands will submerge eventually
One way to help is conservation, that’s a fact
But who will come first and bell the cat

This job will not be a success if done only individually
We have to come together and work collectively
That’s why I urge every person from every nation
To make Saving the Himalayas as their mission

The Himalayas have a majestic beauty
Saving its glory should be everyone’s duty.


-Samyak Parajuli, 7th grade, New Jersey
