The Inner Sky Quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
Portland’s ‘gangster’ crows inspired poem that won international contest
Of all living things, there's something about birds that never fail to move mankind, especially a poetic mind. The power of your liquid verse I think matches with the power of bird's liquid notes, as you said. A lovely poem. Report Reply. Great poems on Birds, I agree with Rajnish Ji's comments. The combination of ten short poems regarding birds has much impact on readers for its beautiful narration and haunting expresssion. Each little poem is unique on its own perception.

Sure maybe ye've heard the storm-thrush Whistlin' bould in March, Before there's a primrose peepin' out, Or a wee red cone on the larch; Whistlin' the sun to come out o' the cloud, An' the wind to come over the sea, But for all he can whistle so clear an' loud, He's never the bird for me. Sure maybe ye've seen the song-thrush After an April rain Slip from in-undher the drippin' leaves, Wishful to sing again; An' low wi' love when he's near the nest, An' loud from the top o' the tree, But for all he can flutter the heart in your breast, He's never the bird for me. Sure maybe ye've heard the cushadoo Callin' his mate in May, When one sweet thought is the whole of his life, An' he tells it the one sweet way. But my heart is sore at the cushadoo Filled wid his own soft glee, Over an' over his "me an' you! Sure maybe ye've heard the red-breast Singin' his lone on a thorn, Mindin' himself o' the dear days lost, Brave wid his heart forlorn. The time is in dark November, An' no spring hopes has he: "Remember," he sings, "remember! Birds are singing round my window, Tunes the sweetest ever heard, And I hang my cage there daily, But I never catch a bird.
