So Many Things - Poem by Neela Nath Das

So many things I have to know.
I'm peeping thru a little window,
And watch a tree, a flying bird,
Small sky and a building's part.
So many things I have to know,
But, I have only a little window.
I suck the color of the sky,
And call the bird as I wish to fly.
I draw a tree looking at that tree.
Thus I everyday set me free.
So many things I come to know,
I have a little space though.
I keep bread on the sill of the window,
A crow picks and calls the other crow.
They gather and take bread one by one,
And fly away when left is none.
That bird has a nest and nestlings,
For them in her mouth she food brings.
They open their mouths and say caw, caw,
Theirs is the same as human law.
Sometimes it seems they quarrel aloud.
Fighting with each other they shout.
But, often I see them to cry,
If they see their fellows to die.
The building's part never give me joy.
The fraction of Nature I only enjoy.

    Through a small window life is seen
    may look ugly, may look mean

    Bash the window, tear down the wall
    All is perfect, and then God calls...

    You keeping watching Nature,
    the grand, old-time preacher!

    Nature when seen through the window though doesn't offer a panoramic view, is still beautiful and soothing than looking at a concrete jungle! Nature with its teeming population of animals and birds offer such wide variety! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

    Nice poem. Liked reading it. Humans or animals we all live in our small world and peek through window. Little things of nature are always there to comfort us. (Report) Reply
