Cobras, black, white and grey,
Which but live in starw roofs, ant-hills, field dividers,
Tree stems or holes,
There are a few non-poisnous snakes
Which run about here and there,
One or two living in the pond another
Another running in the green grass,
The green bean coloured snake
One may take it for a creeper or a bean
And the one running in the green grass
Or around the house is a grey and lined snake,
One which lives in the pond is a non-poisnous one.
But there are some which can take the sleeps away
Krait, Sankhamuti, Kalchiti, Surechanda, Bora
As vipers deadly,
The krait found in the Santhal Patrganas is a very dangeruos snake,
Found in the bushes and hilly tracts,
Deep back, coal tar black and shining,
Just like a plastic piece
With the red tongue.
There are also some which live on trees and in hedges
And they are also poiisnous,
Perhaps a little bit,
One snake like the one of the trees
Too lives in the pond,
The chocolate-coloured metali snake living in muddy and water bodies
You can catch and hurl it about,
So simple and poisonless is it,
The dhaman snake yellowish can even sck milk from the cows
If gets it the opportunity.
