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!

    he says he is as ecstatic as bird and as birds are a part of spreading universal song, music, truth and happiness. he can be made use of sreading such truth as his is a purest soul. (Report) Reply

    To compare the soul with a bird is amusing. (Report) Reply

    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.

    I am ecstatic but have nothing to say.
    For birds have no choice to sing.
    We dont know its a sad one or a happy one. For they sing both with their heart.
    Our feelings are too transparent.
