The Migratory Bird

The Migratory Bird

After all, they must return to their nest
The dear tree is their only shelter
When they grew their wings, were full of energy
And they wanted to fly high and high in the sky
Enough were grains to feed the stomach
Live nearby the nest, you would enjoy your time here
Dwell you in the lap of naughty winds
And enjoy bathing in the spring water
Much were they told, but they heeded not a word
Far and far would they keep flying
Many mornings, many evenings passed by
Here and there, there was not any halt to them
Now slow wings, weak legs , lacking strength
Still they would long for their dear nest
After a long time, they touched the bough , and they wept a lot
They spent a few nights under their own sky
They looked at the earth, pebbles , and the enchanting paths
And stopped on their way to have a one more look
Now they again flew away to the various places
Yet the solace which they found near the nest
Where else could they get, they mused
The whole life would be spent going through struggles, they know
Yet they miss so much their affectionate tree
