The Lonely Bird.

There's a bird up high, above
In solitude, standing on the lamppost
While the morning is still cool
I lift up my head to watch

What else the lonely bird may be, it's the ancient nature. A thoughtful poem.

Lonely bird is indeed a metaphor used for an enlightened soul which is one in a million. The poet has rightly said 'He is good and still stood, as if knowing all'. Thanks.

A lovely poem about the bird who observes. The poet, also an observer, can look out at such a bird and see his story, convey it with words. Thanks for sharing...well deserved poem of the day...
