The Rain God Is Very Courteous! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
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!
