How could I fail to note, from my window pane, a little bird, on the field Years ago, she looked the same! But, No song did she have to sing, forlorn she looked, unknown to me! I gently spoke to her, not to create any fear Why don't you sing, like you used to, dear, you left us all in sadness and now there's still no smile Why don't you sing, you little one!? In sweet song She let me know, I wish you knew more, my friend I'm here tonight, 'cos your at home, I'm sitting here, enjoying the show My world, reborn once more! I'm happy, yes, for sure, but for how long, I do not know! You my friend will never learn this I do certainly know. I'm here today, since you're at war, This will never be enough Greed will eventually show its face, You know, you are what you are. crippling health you will not care, You will be spoiling my earth again, And then I'll say good day once more, And fly off to another place! I stared at her, stunned by what I heard, I wanted to speak But where are the words? The sky had grown the blackest black, and the wind had fast picked up her speed! I turned to her one last time, but alas, she had flown away! Oh! That beautiful innocent face of few, Tell me my friend, Did you notice her too?
Note: I was pleasantly surprised that I saw a sparrow from my window this evening. It has been years since I last saw these little birds here in Bangalore. This was a small tribute to her. God Bless!

Thank you so much! I appreciate your support!
So true. Nature is slowly regaining her health. But once this lockdown is lifted, will we damage her even more? Beautifully penned, sir. I’m yet to see any sparrows here. But I’m glad that they are making a comeback in some part of this city.

Maybe It’s because she lost her way! If this is what one month of ‘no humans’ does to earth, imagine how dangerous we have really been?
