Man In His Greed And Needs! - Poem by Subbaraman N V

Sweet melodious song of the bird
Behind the grills I sat and heard
That little beautiful bird perching
On the branch of neem tree singing
Its lovely song of harmony and peace
Heralding the dawn of new age with ease!

Voice of the crow, bark of the dog
Scent of flowers, chillness of fog
Breeze from the sea, charm of the hill
Rise and fall of the surging waves!
Grace of God and gift of nature
Man to save and secure future!

Alas! man in his greed and needs
Takes to his cruel acts and deeds!
Oh! God grant good sense to the world
To live clean and save people bold!

    Very fascinating poem describing poet's love of Nature. Actually man is foolish enough to ruin the source of his joy. A very thought provoking poem.
    I sincerely invite you write a comment on my poem 'In search of happiness.'
