the first song of the monsoon

That day the tree asked the bird
to sing the first song of the monsoon.
'I will sing it when the monsoon starts'
replied the reactive bird.
Then came the words of smiling tree
'But dear bird, it's that first song
which brings the monsoon.
As long as you restrain yourself
from singing it,
you are depriving the world of rain'

Both the tree and the bird are right. Parable-like, this poem. Beautiful.
