NN20. HUNTER WAS BURNT

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

KING NALAN

Hunter Saw

A hunter hunting nearby,
Heard Dhamayanthi’s cry.
He rushed to the spot
And saw her plight.

In fear she cried

“Oh you’re great!
I’m now caught
In python’s mouth,
And am close to death.”

“I’m under your shelter.
Save me from this danger.
My life is in your hand.
And under your command.”

Hunter rescued her

Just like Chandran Swarki
Saved many from Kali,
The hunter pulled her
And from python saved her.

Is there any reward?

She thanked and said,
“My life, you’ve saved.
Is there any reward
For help of this kind?”

Come with me

He fell for her beauty,
And called her, “Oh pretty,
With me, you can come.”
She had what a bad time.

Ran away with fear

Seeing his bad intention,
Away she tried to run.
On the way, her tears
Flowed like rivers.

Her long hairs got stuck up,
In bushes, when running up,
Like falling from frying pan
To fire, she felt and ran.

He was burnt into ash

Like a running deer,
Before a chasing tiger,
She ran, but became tired
And at some stage, stopped.

She saw the hunter
With all her anger,
And he was then burnt
Into ashes that moment.

Regret for bad days

The desert was full of heat.
In a shady corner, she sat
Thought of her husband
Who pushed her to this end.

She thought of her old days
When, in many ways,
Happy and gay she was,
But now fell in distress.
