After many days
Today wind beckons a immediate rainfall
And nectar smell of clay spread in the air-
Everyone is worried about
Thinking immediate shower.
Everybody is eager to return home
Before starting rain
Yet there is no worry in my mind
No remarkable hastiness is visible
In my movement.
After a long heat wave
Possibility of coveted shower
Spread joy furtively in my warm heart.
I await eagerly for rainfall.
Let it rain now
Let it come down after long
Though there is no shade of big tree
To take shelter,
Even I have no umbrella
If rain water soaks my whole body,
In spite of that let the rain come
May it fall over the whole sky
Let the rain dropp submerging
fields and meadows.
If that unfrugal rain water drowns me
Even engulfs my homestead
There is no loss.
