Mother Rat Returned Back Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Mother Rat Returned Back

Rating: 5.0

Mother rat was searching for food,
She saw bread was hung in a cage,
Rat entered in house of neighbour,
Door of cage was suddenly closed.

Kind neighbour showing kindness,
He took the rat to leave near bushes,
He opened door of cage near far bush,
Rat ran away and hid suddenly there.

But in neighbour's room she was staying,
She had a nest there due to facilities,
And she had given birth to seven pups,
Mother rat was suckling them in affection.

Baby rats cried and mother rat too cried,
Crossing roads and buildings of danger,
In a deeply rainy night after two days,
Mother rat returned back to her nest again.

Perhaps she heard squeaks of children,
She communicated and searched road,
Through ultrasound vibrations she found,
Wonderful mother rat returned back finally.

A mother’s love knows no bounds. She will take care of her young ones even at the risk of her own life. Here the mother rat was caught in a rat trap. She was searching for food to feed her new born young ones. Fortunately the man who caught her had let the mother go. Though she had to cross a dangerous track, she didn't hesitate and somehow returned to her children. An inspiring story!

It is amazing to watch videos of wild animals on various nature sites on television- we get to see the most horrendous of animals [crocodile, for instance] tenderly and gently tending to her babies and they stay with her upwards of two years... and she doesn't eat them! ! ! ! Enjoyed your poem of a rat's tale ;)
