She was a Mother

Updated on August 22, 2012
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 !

      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.
