Summer woes

In this scorching heat which is tough to beat,

I think about the clouds, dense and shroud,

When will you come back dear monsoon,

We are counting the days, please come soon.

I am losing my plants to the intense heat,

There is no way to save them or cheat the sun.

When going outside is a task,

And you have to cover yourself with a mask.

Can’t express how the rains would feel,

When people can go out with a new zeal!
