Mangoose Mum - Poem by lalitha iyer

her darlings
the mangoose mum
is caution's synonym.

Love the beauty
that stands erect
with the soft paws
stern in the airy straws.

the supple trunk
strokes your heart
the velvetty motion
is a sight of evolution.

the alert looks
caution strewn books
every smell
that itches from far away hills.

the most amazing sight
is the babies' flight
they find their ways beneath
the motherly umbrella heap

long tailed stretching like a stick
to human eyes, there is no space to pass
the mother's heart is largest
to the passing baby dearest.

The melting eloquence
of a mother's care sings
as he traces her hunting bed
armouring her kids with her clueless spread.
