The Blazing Earth Of Chaitra & Baisakh

The blazing and burning earth of Chaitra and Baisakh,
Hot and humid and baffling,
No respite from heat,
Intensive, extensive,
The cattle panting
Under the shed,
The villages lie they
Sun-burnt
Under the strong sun
Falling straight,
The earth is burning,
The sands of the dry river
Difficult to traverse,
But still during the nights
The whiffs and wisps of jasmines
The wind carrying through
And the summer scented with
The aroma and perfume of
Champas, belis, raatranis, kaaminis,
Water drying to be vapours
And the clouds to burst
In the month of Shravana and Bhadra.
