Mild and Melodious

Mild and Melodious


The milder one knew it, yet, got lured,
a melodious kind mesmerized her, as assured.

She let it into her nest,
only to find more eggs, after it left.

She could rear only the aggressive.
while the mild, could not survive.

It was too late a realization,
those alive, had grown a passion to sing.

The crow blamed her own fate,
the young cuckoos sung their heart out.

      Thanks tamara. The message is that to survive is important.

      I am reading in-between the lines for the intended meaning, or is the message upon the surface? At any rate, it’s lovely!

      Thanks mark for your visit and appreciation. Cuckoo's are parasitic in nature. They are not taught to rear their own kind.

      Hi Charmaine,

      Thanks for your visit.

      Yes, the cuckoos are very active during the summer season in our place.

      This attitude is quite common in many of us humans too :-).

      Thanks,

      I volunteer for s native wildlife organization. Yes, I learnt that the cuckoo bird is a opportunist and a survival strategist.

      Do you know or have any cuckoo's around you hari? You are so smart dont let them fool you.
