Catching Birds

In my childhood I caught birds Just to tame. Caged and fed them in- water, rice and biscuit; Just to grow up, To make accompany. I climbed up tress Broke the nests And brought them to home. But, when I grew up, I felt love- they would be sad if snapped out from parents. They have a little family As I have. Do I need to do it more?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In my childhood, I was very eager to catch birds to domesticate them as my friend. I broke their nests and brought the little birds from the tress to home and kept them in a cage and tried to fee them water, rice, biscuit, loff and many others. But I was never successful to domesticate them. They never took a bit of food. And obediently, I freed them. The childhood passed. I became understanding. I understood how the bird's parents might cry for their child. I felt a lot of love in my heart! And I never tried to chase them more. Everything is beautiful at its place.
