Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 171

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

IF I WERE A BIRD

If I were a bird

I would have opened my wings

to fly high in the blue ocean of endless liberty,

at times I would have descended to this earth

to take a worm or a drop to quench my material hunger,

to fetch aid to my friends,

to talk about higher values.

Again I would have gone up and up

to invade the upper ether

to sense the beauty of heaven.
