Winter Dinner

Khushi Khanal

In winter,
It’s  fun to have dinner.
When my mummy,
Prepares food yummy.
For the family
Gathered around the table.

The dinner night is lovely,
Candle in the middle,
Rice, curry, chicken and fish,
Served on the table

We ate rice,
We ate beef and
Hot mushroom soup,
Soon our belly got full!
And belching and burping
We thanked our mother
For the delicious food.
