A Crow's Way Of Life - Poem by lalitha iyer

Crow of all the birds
the master tutor of
the biggest University
teaches how to share
how to care the loved one
and feed the yound one
architect of breeding homes
on teaching the young one
how to fly
teaches us how to teach
our own kids
wakes up
before we lazy dogs wake up
disciplined self styled
no inferiority
of colours it feels
happily begins the day
memory sharp
same time same place you feed
and it waits for you
known survivor of worst times
very competitive
for every grain
it sweats with focussed flights
a lot left
yet, it is the best socialist symbol......

    As human beings have to learn much from the crow and its various tricks it is a nice subject for poets. This poem also taken the subject in its seriousness and minutest points and it became a good poem. (Report) Reply
