The Feathered Wonders
These wondrous creatures
with beautiful plumes
On the boundless canvas
of the earth and sky
Models of Nature's perfect art
source of delight and wonderment
Emanating pleasure with their beauty All around them , perpetually . .
As if deeply dipped in paint
Prepared in Nature's own secret vault
Vibrant and glowing and vividly rich
As rainbows in their 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 .
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 creatures ?
Oh how I wish to borrow and feel
A little of this enviable grace
Though , for a short and transient phase
It would still be an immense bliss !
