नष्टोत्सवपुरप्रायमगस्त्यात्तमिवार्णवम् ।
ग्रीष्मदग्धमिवोद्यानं विद्युद्दग्धमिव द्रुमम् ॥ ४ ॥

naṣṭotsavapuraprāyamagastyāttamivārṇavam |
grīṣmadagdhamivodyānaṃ vidyuddagdhamiva drumam || 4 ||

All joy had fled from the house, and left it as the dry bed of the dead sea, after its waters were sucked by the scorching sun (Agastya). It was as a garden parched in summer, or a tree struck by lightning.
