This Lady Is Too Senstitive - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Prosperity is a lady, who is very fortunate,
To keep the richness of health, wealth and happiness,
She seeks the human, who are brisk and vibrant,
Lack of laziness, over indulgence and ignorance,
When the human are eager to pursue her,
She can easily befriend them and solicit them,
She can be a slave in the hands of shrewd people,
Even she walks on four legs as the loyal dogs,
Once the boss of her starts to abuse her,
She may abscond as the fairies in the tales,
It may take a long time to woo her on the laps,
Prosperity is a lady, not a man to be clumsy and unkempt,
If she is with you, hold her tight: she will hug you in delight.
