Fridge Flash: The Cool Air Giver

May 2, 2017

Today’s Fridge Flash comes from seven-year-old Shifa Asif, who extols the beauties of nature.

By Shifa Asif

You give us cool air and oxygen,
And they are very beautiful,
It has greenery,
It grows and has a lovely smell,
They have colours inside,
The honey bees stand on top of the flower.
