At dawn I sat down by the pond, and saw the wonder-
Of the nimbleness of the Sunbird glide down the mallow
Down with the dew drops and back to begin again.
The Mynas pick little may-flies that squirmed by the pond
The Munias fly by and feed the nestlings, nestled on the branch near
The warblers warble in haste to the silver oaks yonder,
The fish splash in the pond, amongst the lilies salmon and pink.
And the Toad, croak beneath the waterleaf, before it slumbers at the break of day.
I walked down the way, and saw the owls perched atop
The crow pheasant annoyed ,move into the bush as my steps near
While the Peacocks flutter in chorus, to stay away.
I saw the sun in its amber glow; gently spread its aurora.
And the crimson clouds give way to the, brightness
of another day.
I saw the Geckos scamper away at the alight of the day.
The birds of the sky fly by in union; the dragon- flies descend and dance a ballet.
A cuckoo sang from a distant tree.
I turned aside and saw my dog walk by my side, look longingly at me and say, ‘aye’!
Then I wondered- man, misfit in such a day? I saw for sure the answer was, 'ye'.
