Monsoon, you, O monsoon,
Why do you desert us so soon?
Each day was greeted with your shower,
Leave us in the hot sun never.
Last summer you taught us your worth,
We welcomed you with heartfelt mirth.
You weren’t active this year too,
I know, you are sad for what we do.
Monsoon, you, O monsoon, do not leave us so soon,
I’ll think of you morning, evening and noon.
