Hey Rain ! A blessing though we call you
You bring not the same cheer every time
Why behave so madly time and again
True , you arrive with soothing relief
When the earth is all dried up and parched
With its creatures desperate and famished
Praying God for mercy all day and night .
Then you descend from the heaven above
Like a shower of nectar sprinkled all over
Reviving life in the dying landscape
By providing it with the timely succor .
But this bonhomie does not last long
As you shed off your sweet countenance
And turn to be deadly hostile
Unleashing the fury of a callous marauder .
And start unleashing havoc all around
Right from the hills to the deep valleys
Down the fields damaging rich crops
Ravaging human habitations with thick populace .
With thunderous cloudburst and wild torrents
Blocking highways with frequent landslides
Collapsing houses burying people alive .
Trees , men , animals being drowned
And carried away by monstrous waters
Vehicles with passengers swept away
Instead of reaching their destined places .
All this arrogant show of power
Is to be condemned and sorely despised
Hence, please stop this dance of death
Destroying the peace and life on the earth .
Enough of all frightening sessions
Now put an end to this horrid nightmare
And let normalcy resume its place
To repair and rebuild the huge damage .
Else who will ever welcome you again
In this ravaged and lifeless land ?
If no one is left alive and survive ?
