Eagles and Doves


O little Birdie! I tell you a tale
for you to be wise so not to fail
of birds and eagles so small and tall
prey and predator with joy and yowl

there are skies or may be a sky
for all sort of birds to let them fly
from its nest when they were at rest
Safe and secured not low not high

there is fear, oh! there is fear
shouted the eagles in chorus and pair
even from earth for someone to hear
the birds so scared for the near and dear

Wise and old knew this was a ploy
as eagles were hungry and that was no joy
they shouted so loud but yet so pale
infront of fear and the wails

never some thought to have fallen as prey
for the highs of sky nights and day
for the deaf and dumb so low and high
the eagles were waiting and not any shy

then history repeated with no new tale
for the birds to fall on hills and vale
the joyful eagles with wails and cry
the birds so naive with teary eyes
