Birdsong - Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Birdsong brings relief
to my longing
I'm just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say!
Please universal soul, practice
some song or something through me!

    Birds sing in wee hours.and even thereafter.Bharadwaj flaps its wings only once sitting as it sings.In 10 seconds it pours ten notes., loud, distinct and well is very sweet.It follows ascending, descending, all grammars of music.May be they communicate something to their friends.They are mostly invisible when they sing.These songs /music are convex also.that means peaceful coexistence came through birds music also.

    Birds in different shapes and colors, different singing habits, varied positions of chirping opting trees of good branches, cool breeze climate interesting ones, and also their joy of drinking and bathing in freshwater in extreme climates, the perfect beauty of the birds have catched attention of poets world wide where Rumi the great poet is not an exception. His small but simple and at the same time meaningful lines of poem and the relief he gets when hearing the songs may be and ecstatic feeling that gets to the poet is wonderful indeed.I enoys the poem in its beauty and narration of words that makes the nature wonderful.
