Treasure Island

Khairul Ahsan


The Singing Bird


There is a sad lonely bird,
Who lives continents apart,
She sings melodious songs,
That enchant my heart.

Pouring her soul into her songs,
She loves singing at her free will
I wonder if she ever notices me,
Always all ears, to admire her skill.

There is no problem whatsoever,
As long as I keep listening to her.
The moment I ask her a question,
Off she goes into a hibernation,
And never bothers to answer!

    I'm the child of nature, I have no problem if others enjoy my beauty what I have, but in no way I'm supposed to be ruled by any one or listen to anyone..... very nice... a taste of freedom (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
