To a Cattle Egret

1 Jul

Yellow hood and white body,
No glamour but true beauty,
You help of the farmers,
Refuge of the Cattle, blessed be thou.

You cleanse the Cattle from leeches,
They owe thee a lot, but unable to say cheers,
You understand their plight and come to their assistance,
You help keep up the ecological balance

Oh, Egret you teach us a lot,
To help others without recognition,
To love without expectations,
Bend beneath all till death

Sometimes filled with bitterness and temptation,
I go astray, the momentary pleasure I indulge,
You inspire me to do best at all times,
Till in heaven, we find repose at the end

 

To an Owl

10 Feb

why do you stare at me,
Has no one ever impressed you?
Or has no one dared to look at you?

Indeed your looks have impressed me,
Night and Day I dream about you,
Those beautiful eyes that stare keep me awake,
Eagerly I wait for my next encounter with you

When in Nature we did find Solace,
Financially poor were we,
But our heart was full of love for thee,

Late at night we did hear your voice,
Though now only a few trees remain,
Greedy Men have encroached thy place of rest,
Destroying nature night and day for petty interests.
