Thanksgiving Day

It is a thanksgiving day

thanks to the Lord

who made them all

that of the Sun, Moon

and rain in turns

without them none could thrive

even a grass cannot survive

not talking cheap of the green blades

as they the best tolerant  do fade

when these three elements fail

the farmer pays obeisance to Sun

January being the month of harvest

the clan go into a festive mood

with joy and mirth all around

singing the praise of God

paying tributes to Him

with offerings sweet and tasty

all done with a focused  dedication

there is an overwhelming devotion

packed with gratitude and satisfaction

a lovely rhapsodical  enrapture on the anvil.Pongal
