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 Egret

28 Nov

Amidst paddy fields of green I stand,IMG_0648
Beautiful white Egrets I find,
Some small, some large as they walk with pride,
Lovely Egrets joy of Twitcher eye

Without any pomp and glamour you arrive,
Not uttering a word you wander,
You help the poor cows free their leeches,
Till done you pluck them all with your beak tall

So common a visitor you are in paddy fields,
The villagers seldom care about your presence,
I too was once ignorant of your beauty,
Till my inner eye valued your presence

IMG_0516Now far away from your company I stay,
Among the tallest and beautiful buildings of clay,
When overworked and need a lay,
I remember your presence in the green where once I stayed

Come Oh Egret now with your white beauty,
Remove every leech of lust and misery, From my frail self,
Treat me like those poor cows waiting for your return,
So that like them I too will be free from lust and miseries
