Birds In The Sky
Look how birds in the sky,
Together in unison they fly.
Content in Nature's beauty,
For all it bestows in plenty,
They pile not grain selfishly,
And never of hunger do they die.
Only does man hoard Nature's bounty
And only man dies of hunger in poverty.
(Translation of Bulleh Shah)
