Tropical Travails

Wish it was not
So very hot here
This spot I’m in

The Lu Wind blows
As it grows hot
And sows disease

We boil and sweat
And get het up
No let up yet

It’s hard to wait
In this great heat
So late rains seem

So in one tune
In hot noon time
Monsoon is wooed

The black Koel sings
With notes rings out
On wings it’s song

Come welcome rain
End our pain now
Our plaintive cry

( ASA)

( Than Bauks )
