The Burning House

That night when I was asleep
the house which always used to weep
which always used to groan
that it could never become a home
which used to witness the fight
of the husband and wife.
That house was burning.
I was awakened by people's squeaking.

The husband somehow managed to escape
and was therefore safe.
But his wife was stuck inside.
For help she repeatedly cried.
Her wailing, 
aroused his dead feeling.
Without caring about his life
he went to save his wife.
Embracing his lady in his arm
he heroically saved her from fire's harm.

The love between husband and wife
was again revived
after house's sadful demise.
The house indeed gave a great sacrifice.
