Sonnet- Leisure Is Important - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Just like how machines need rehaul and rest,
An annual check-up, change of worn- out parts;
The human body relaxed, works the best;
A recreated mind excels the arts.

Divide your time 'tween vocation, leisure;
There is a time to work, play and slumber;
Rejuvenation comes best from Nature;
The professional's a family-member.

The stress of modern life is growing fast;
The new-born child's a victim of this plague;
It kills and maims more people than in past;
Gone are the days of Phthisis and brain-ague!

Overworking kills persons prematurely;
Health is the wealth we earn most leisurely.
