SUMMARY OF THE POEM
This poem is about a snake. The snake was lying on the sand comfortably basking in the sun. But he was disturbed by some beings and was pursued with a stick in hand.
The poet describes in the poem how the snake tries to escape the stick by trying to run curving his thin long body. His shapes seem to be very beautiful. Then the snake enters the water and glides away trying to escape the stroke of the stick.
Then somebody advised me to let the snake go away as this was a small green snake. This type of snake is not harmful even to the kids. In the meantime, the snake succeeds in running away and hides in the green reeds which are of the same colour. Like this, the snake escapes.
