The Ant And The Dove - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

A dove saw an ant struggling,
To come out water, but failing,
From a pond, down below the tree,
And wished to rescue it free.

A small leaf, the dove dropped,
And o'er it, the poor ant jumped.
From its drowning, it was rescued,
And to the shore, safely it reached.

A hunter, one day, saw this dove,
And was ready to kill it, with his bow.
He aimed at his target, on the treetop,
Pointing his arrow, dead sharp.

The ant saw the fate of the dove,
And wished to help it somehow.
It ran up near the hunter, to bite,
And divert him from the target.

The hunter felt a prick in his foot,
And raised his hand, to kill the ant,
But by then, the smart ant ran away,
While the fortunate dove, flew away.
