A puff of smoke enveloped our heads. Dad cleared his throat. “Yes, well, I
suppose I always thought there would be time for one more farm. I thought I'd
have time to go back to cattle. A small ranch somewhere near Choma, you know?
" He shook his head. “And then one day I realized this is it. We're not going
anywhere. This is the last farm. You always think there will be more time and then
suddenly there isn't. You know how it is. You have to leave before the rains come,
or it's too late.

The same sense of loss characterizes the poem 'Rain Dance'. 'My mother puts on
her royal attire / to do the rain dance of a princess, / but her feet are barren,/ for it
no longer rains like before.' Ibohal is no less political than most of his
contemporaries, like Yumlembam Ibomcha Singh and Thangjam Ibopishak, but

he doubts for ...

down trees and houses, cometh mostly by the turning of the Wind out of the south
, by the west into the north, which clears the air, and drives away rain. How to

I did not there State, and do not remember, the date of the beginning of my
reaping in 1821; but the whole was finished, and the last reaped was shocked,
just before the long spell of rain began. It had rained gently one day only during
