Birds Nest Poem by Om Chawla

Birds Nest

Rating: 4.7

Often have we seen a bird
flying far, again and again
collecting straws to weave a nest-
A shelter to lay eggs
a home- for its young ones to be.
As eggs are hatched
out come the young
chirping or crying, to be fed,
the bird flies again, and again
collecting grains
to feed the young
who cannot fly
It chews the grain but does not swallow
beak to beak it feeds young fellow
caressingly and lovingly
so all are fed properly.
Young get wings, by and by:
and coaxed by the mother bird;
attempt to fly.
Then suddenly one day
the young one flies far away
It knows not where: and
The nest gets barren once again.
We humans, we do not know.

I chose to comment on this poem because I adore birds - this write is so beautiful and sweet, and poses a thought-provoking question at its conclusion. Enjoyed reading very much.

An observation from Nature leading to a question, we have to ponder over! The young birds fly to greater heights. The parent birds' task ends there! There is no more regrets! But what about man? He foolishly carries a life time of cares and regrets about his children flown from him! If you get time, please read my poem- An Epilogue to a Prologue on a bird tending her fledglings! Immensely enjoyed this piece! !

I love and enjoyed this poem based on the topic of birds, their young ones nestling, leaving the nest at the right time for good. Thanks for sharing. I quote a few lines: Young get wings, by and by: / and coaxed by the mother bird; / attempt to fly.
