    the shopkeeper beams
    as tango crackles
    from her gramophone

    John – I've never been to the Delta but your poem makes me feel like I am there

    at the season's start
    I bought the first cone sold
    ice cream divets told of stolen bites

    Education stables a person in bearing up his personal expenses. It enables him to get good job so that he can become a helping hand for his family members. This also realizes him how hard it is to earn money and its worth.
