To a Cuckoo

Asian Koel of Cuckoo Family

Long I have heard your voice, that melodious voice,
Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo, Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo,
Theme of popular poets and tune of famous movies,
Oh wandering voice I love thee, though never have I seen thee

Once in my In-Laws house, I happened to see you,
Perched on a tree, gazing left and right,
Infinite joy filled my heart,
Of finally perceiving the voice I so long enjoyed

Perfect black beauty with long tail,
Dark crimson eyes staring right at me,
Grey feet and bill grey cum greenish pale,
You adorable Cuckoo, how lovely though art

Back to my daily chores I am now, Of monotony and strain,
Whenever I am drenched by Life`s pains,
I recall to mind that beautiful day I perceived you,
Like a mild medicine, you relive me

Your vision gives me the energy to restart every day anew,
Koo-Ooo Koo-Ooo, God is everywhere you confirm,
Blessed be his name for all eternity,
For creating nature and life so precious
