Birds (Englyn Proest Dalgrom) - Poem by Leslie Alexis

A bird was flying to rest,
But kept uplifted his chest
Even in the midday’s heat,
He desired to fulfill the feat;

His chest lifted for the world.
Wings outstretched, and tail uncurled,
Working as one to give thrust;
Flying for those stuck in dust.

In the north, south, east and west
Many say birds have it best,
Because of this single truth:
Those birds have the greatest youth!

He has countries as his bench,
And knows English, Dutch and French.
Yet cousins share the same speech.
Many lessons they can teach:

Like the coming of typhoons
And if in Japan, monsoons;
How to find worms in the earth;
Finding peace from a shelled birth.

For many, birds wear the suit
Of beauty - the peacocks’ truth-
Not many are dressed so posh;
His fine robes the heavens wash.

Even love goes to the lovebirds.
Many sing the sages’ words,
That done with the simplest charms,
Can cause man to lay his arms.
