The Feathered Wonders
These wondrous creatures
with beautiful plumes
On the boundless canvas
of the earth and sky
models of Nature's perfect art
Emanating pleasure and wonderment
All around perpetually . .
As if deeply dipped in paint
Prepared in Nature's own secret vault
Vibrant and glowing and vividly rich
As rainbow in unique splendor
And equally blessed do they sound
With voices varied alluring and sweet
Chitter chatter chirrup and peep
Warble and coo in melodious tweet .
. Flowing freely from little throats .
Who but Nature is the super artist
That ordained this inimitable blend
of colors, sounds, mirth and movement
And put it all in these tiny frames ?
Oh how I wish to borrow and feel
A little of this heavenly grace
Though , for a short and transient phase
It would still be an immense bliss !
