An African Golden Weaver Bird Metamorphose - Poem by David Aoloch Bion

Resplendent Amuoor,
one species of African sparrow
that lives in jonglei region of Sudan
In rainy season lies ecstasy of it life.
It eats sorghum, insects and flowers
It lay eggs
It sings morning songs
When dry season, Amuoor find difficulty to lives on as bird
So it metamorphose, plummette it feathers
It grows hair it skin
It wings grow into hind legs
And it gradually transform in mice
That doesn’t drink water in dry season
To bear the dry season
Goes on living as a mice
Until next rainy season whereby metamorphose again
Back Amuoor bird
