AT THE BIRDS' FAIR
The birds into the sky again flew for their fair;
The humans had but to stare!
Myriads and more flew from without,
Others from within and ascended out_
The blue sky here was grey, there yellow
Here and everywhere was many a sweet hello!
The sky seemed confused,
Oh, everywhere birds diffused!
The mid-year breeze gently blew
And the birds still into the mid sky flew.
The sun dazzlingly shone;
In his lonely state, today, he was not alone!
What propelled them from distant lands to come?
Oh, i can't to all give a name
But eagles, cranes, weavers, kites
And just like ravens sung, only performing their usual rites!
The humans gazed and gazed_
What had these birds crazed?
One human here stood, another there
All their eyes into the dazzling air.
The contest thus began,
When behind a large black bird, two small ran_
At its tail they seemed to pluck,
This day, their luck!
no one knows what they discussed!
A lie here and am cursed!
For things of nature still marvel
Those humans who travel.
In groups myriads and more,
The birds left in other skies to soar_
But the humans one by one,
Left, like they had come, one by one!
