Dear Student,

The solution to your Qa has been provided below:

In the poem, the water rises from the land and the bottomless sea in the form of vapour. It then changes its form, transforms itself into clouds. It comes down to the earth in the form of rain to wash drought, provide water, give life to unborn and latent seeds inside the earth. The rain purifies and beautifies the earth. This is the cyclic movement explained by the poet.
