(010) Fellow Birds

As the sun showed it's first ray of light
I told everyone it's time to take flight
They asked me whether the adventure would be long
I said it would'nt be if we hum a nice little song
Our destination is a very long flight to London
The decision to go there was taken very sudden
We reached there in two days, which seemed like two hours
My friends thought to change time I had magical powers
We settled down on an oak tree
In a yard that was cat free
The yard was filled with fruits
Berries, leaves and roots
We had a sumptuous dinner that day
Although there were ants, we ate it anyway
We made friends with a family of beaver
They gave us fresh fish from the flowing river
I love my new home, it's like a dream come true
Go back to my old city, a job I will never do.

An excellent poem to have been written by you at so tender an age.

It's a splendid poem, Risha! Write more especially about Nature. Best of luck, dear! Rahi
Risha - Do you dream about flying when you are asleep at night? I do, and I love it! I can float above the tree tops and swoop and soar. In order to take off, all I have to do is think it, then it happens. Life is like that too, if you can think it, it can happen. Keep swooping and soaring anywhere you want to go! Great poet! See my poem Dream Pockets when you get a chance. Love ya - Cheryl
What a wonderful and surprising poem! It has a great energy about it. Yes, you do have magic, to change yourself to a bird, to experience their joy. Thank you, Risha! I hope you will read another of my poems soon. Jonathan
