THE STALE PEARLS

"Your humility too eludes any emulation and stands supreme 
You are like no one else in the fourteen worlds so for I know 
My joy can't be contained, nor words rise to that level supreme 
Take this pearl necklace that keeps the memory alive, you know."

"What with that necklace can I do? It serves not any purpose 
Bless me instead; for, I 've none to give, nor it suits my corpus" 
Much against such pleas, she handed over to him her pearl necklace 
And asked him waiting there, till she returned from the palace.

Horror greeted her return with a fruit basket after some time 
She found the necklace cracked and scattered near the dias 
And Anjaneya yet biting and throwing, saying, 'stale' every time, 
Almost all the pearls were bitten and abondoned like a man unwise.

Enraged at his monkeying, Sita uttered in a whimpering voice 
"How blasphemous; What 've you done to that priceless rare jewel 
Given by my father for filial duty, Which I gave as mark of rejoice, 
Mine's a sin in giving to one, who acts alike to jewel or fuel.
