In A Golden Desert Field


In a golden desert field sparrows played.
The sun beamed down from heaven, there was little shade
While the ravens circled over keeping watch
The sparrows kept right on playing, they didn't stop
Along came some chipmunks to join in the game
Two squirrels in the distance wanted the same
So they came over and started a fun chase
Four brown bunnies set up to investigate
While the wind softly blowing carried the voice
Of the robins singing their song of choice
I sat there and watched in amazement
Thinking have I died and to heaven went

    I like the concluding lines:
    I sat there and watched in amazement
    Thinking have I died and to heaven went
    Excellent poem, I would like to translate into our mother tongue, TAMIL, if I can. (Report) Reply
