Word High July: Likha




Holding in beak the little bird

Straws of grass colourful furred

Weave the twigs, a skillful art

Knitting the leaves part by part






A home little in branches hung

Protecting chicks still so young

And gentle wind in hours of dusk

Cradles to sleep, in beds of husk

  1. As some other commenters have mentioned, the poem does have a nice, cheerful beat. I always enjoy seeing birds making nests for their young. The main ones I see where I live are swallows nesting under awnings. It’s always a very uplifting sight.

  2. First, I love the shape of thoses nests!! I had a wreath hanging on my front door and twice this year birds built a nest in it, hatched eggs, fed their babies and then all flee away. I have glass in my front door so I was able to watch the whole process. It was so sweet and fascinating!! Love your uplifting poem. 😊

    • Oh what a wonderful scene it must have been! Nice that they chose that place! I have pigeons living on the terrace of my house, they look so scared all the time. I have stopped going to that part of the house, I don’t like them panicking! πŸ™‚ Thank you Deb, for the compliments! πŸ™‚
