Work And Work In Time

Long ago there lived a mortal Poor was he and named Morraine His mother and sister -the only beings All they lived in a rough terrain. Morraine sat for days idle Their existence became thread bare; His mother tried her words to remove the sequel- But the poor chap sat seeing day-mares. The day of disaster came withuot late- His mother of illness met her fate; Work and not idleness could set things right; Was what she said before loosing the worldly fight. The very words went through like sharp pin- Morraine realised his committed sin; "What blunders were those I committed ! Through toils would set up myself", he said. After days of working hard and good- Success kissed Morraine's foot; "Oh! If only had I done it early- Of illness and for money mother wuld'nt have left so quickly." Listen to elders --they have the wisdom Work hard -you will be the king of your kingdom; And working in time saves losses a lot; Are the three themes in this poem through the story-subtle and short.
