The Gesture. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..
It swam across the river
Enjoying the coolness of water
Escaping the hardships of heat
The beat and punishment
The torment in the hands of humans
After all freedom that it tried to enjoy
On the way a little child offered
A ripe banana and watermelon
He had cooled himself and stood
The little boy's kindness and gesture
It was a tamed elephant
Walking in procession with hardship
And tried to escape the heat.
