We Too


Cuckoo did not make sweet call
I am early riser and respond to nature’s call
I enjoy morning dews on plants
That is only our future and want

I found giant trees no more
The ground lay opened and bare
I realized it was felling of trees
That bird had disappeared scene

The concrete jungle may mushroom
New buildings may come up with more rooms
People may move in new habitat
The birds may be pushed far away to fight

The birds must find their new homes
Not far from civil population and must come
To make their presence felt for our good
As they have proved important in neighborhood

Birds have their important role to play
We can not afford if they go away
They are part of our survival and existence
We must protect them with strong insistence

If they survive then we too
This is fact and true
Some of the insects are their food
It is naturally right and good to us

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
