The rain God is very courteous!


One fine evening,
It is a rainy day, but evening!

It is about 5 o’ clock,
The sky is getting dark!

The dark clouds in the sky are hovering,
The rain is likely to pour with lightning!

I wanted to go out for giving
A set of books for binding!

An abdominal corset buying,
The cloud till I return shouldn't be raining!

What can I do?
Can I stop the rain for two hours and go?

I thought of a poem written 2000 years ago,
By a Respectful Poet Thiruvalluvar - with ego!

The poem goes to say like this -
Virtuous woman who is faithful

To the spouse and dutiful
May not even pray the almighty;

“But, If she says, Oh’ Rain!
You must pour, it will rain! ”

The rain will fall instantaneously,
The power of virtue and fidelity!

I thought why not I use the same powers,
To stop the rain till I return, just for two hours!

My wife prayed for the same purpose to stop the rain,
I did my job and returned home; the prayer didn't go in vain!

The rain God is very courteous,
The rain followed is highly gracious!
