Poem (The feed)
Holding a grain of millet in her beak ,
The mother sparrow has come to feed.,
The young ones are so tiny and small,
From head to toe they are beaks ,
When they cry.
One grain to be fed to the ten young ones ,
To whom the mother sparrow should feed?
Conjoining beak with beak ,
With whom should she solace?
Fissuring the atom,
You have learnt to weep and wall in a loud tone.
Splitting the grain,
You have learnt to set life on foot ,
Could you split the grain?
One grain to be fed to the ten young ones.
