Dont Slight That Little Bird - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

the greatest
of songs
and music
is they help
human evolve
the birds,
the crickets
toads and frogs
the stars, moon
and mars
the entire comsic
sheet by sheet
layer by layer
they build up
the foundations
of the human mind
for cognitive pleasures
the amoeba for
its adventures into
complex creatures
a child would be
dull without
the lullabies
that soothe
and build up
his world
the piano
is not a piano
without its
sonic bars
dont slight
that little bird
in the air
it might just
one day wear
an intellgience
greater than men

    Wonderful flow - the beauty of this poem was not knowing where it was leading me - liked the way you went full circle to give such a satisfying ending. Kind regards, Justine. (Report) Reply
