The Old Memory..

When I see through the window,
There are no birds around,
A few with the tinge of yellow,
Blue, green, white and black,
Where they have gone,
From this prosperous valley,
Once carefully surrounded by the trees,
Now the wounded hills and the sky scrapers,
Just outside my former abode,
The cold mist is replaced with rustic people,
The place has changed and gained the value,
All my favorite trees and birds are gone,
Though I observe through this window,
All day long, the melody from the jungle paradise,
Gone somewhere, not to the distant land,
But to be obsolete, in concreted forest,
Everything and everyone has become obsolete,
Can be used for a while, then to be discarded..

    Man is encroaching into nature
    Without consideration of the future
    How long can we sustain
    If man shows this disdain.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
