Bird Nesting. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

They were pair of birds
Loving each other, living in forest
In a grand fragrant tree they nested
The fragrance of sandal they enjoyed
In the middle of life struggles lived
The good sandal wood tree loved them
Made all avenues for their happy life
The wind made concession there
The sand never gone in heights to disturb
The happiest of souls they joined
The marvelous togetherness they enjoyed
Whenever they got a prey they shared
In water sources they traced little fish
Greatest moments of bird life they liked
Wished for a long life in their little world
Things are always changing in world
The king's queen liked for a fragrant coat
An age old sandal wood tree she wished
For a smooth sleep in night enjoying the smell
Her wishes were the diktat for the king
A henpecked poor king he was, people told
A good carpenter called to the palace
And asked the place where the sandalwood tree is!
No doubt the specified tree where birds nested
And asked to cut the tree at the shortest
The good birds in tears asked to exempt
Their little nest they selected there own
The King is might and he can select another
Leave our nest here, and give a hope
No one hear the plight, the tree was cut
The birds still wander in heights for a tree
A big sandal wood tree with good fragrance
The wind offered its help to find out
The rain wished it will offer the watering
A man in jungles offered his help to plant
Planting of a good tree he saw a good deed
And making a solution of nesting to the birds.

    When we cut down trees, the birds are sadly deprived of their habitats! Nature is the kind mother to man and all living beings! We humans should allow birds and animals to co habit this beautiful Earth! Our selfishness and greed shouldn't pose a severe threat to other living beings! A great message through this story poem!
