She was a Mother

Oh, the sad bird
Oh, the sad bird
poor  fledgelings
poor fledgelings

While watering the plants one morning

In my garden, amid rows of the trees

I saw a bird very familiar, on her perch

sad and taut, little upset with a lurch

Hello sweety, i greeted her as usual

then i wished to get her chirping pearl

but, all quite and without a single chirp

she just gazed in the brances of birch

Boggled with a fright of her gesticulation

my mind was busy in some speculation

for sure, something happened here scary

that has made my little darling worry

I rushed into the bushes for a search

for getting some clues under the birch

I got then, my life’s greatest amazement

her nest with nestlings in the basement

And on the branch of birch was a hawk

with a wickedness in his eyes to stalk

I knew then the reason, to her that bother

she was saving her kids life, she was a Mother !



“No man is poor who has a Godly mother.” ― Abraham Lincoln

“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.” ― Karl Lagerfeld

“The best place to cry is on a mother's arms.” ― Jodi Picoult, House Rules

“In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” ― N.K. Jemisin

“May each of us remember this truth; 'one cannot forget mother and remember God. One cannot remember mother and forget God.' Why? Because these two sacred persons, God and mother, partners in creation, in love, in sacrifice, in service, are as one.” ― Thomas S. Monson

I enjoyed the Rhyme scheme allot, i live in a semi wooded area and it was very easy to visualize this happening. I think you captured the moment very well.
