A forest on fire
Is the most terrible sight
That will haunt one ever after
As a dreadful nightmare !
It brings untold sufferings
To the myriad forms of life
Ranging from soft green grass
To the bushes and tough tree trunks.
And host of ants and tiny insects
, Bees , butterflies and birds in nests
Mammals with new born offspring
And even human beings close by .
All are madly running for life
. Here and there in utter distress
To find shelter somewhere in the place
.That once had been their own safe home .
What caused this most terrible incident
Is a question that troubles everyone
Whether it was nature or some human being
That wickedly planned this criminal misdoing .
Was it a spark created unawares
By some one's acts of sheer negligence
Or the result of a deliberate offence
Planted with some selfish intent ?
Whatever the reason be , but now
The bitter truth we sadly realise
That unable are we to fight this blaze
However hard we go on trying .
Hence as the ultimate resort , we all
Are turning for help to you my lord
Pray. save your helpless creatures soon
By pouring down your merciful showers !!!
