    Wouldn’t it be nice to be a bird in the sky,
    To watch all the clouds and the sun go by,
    To flutter the wings , and sing and dance,
    And perch on the clouds for a little romance

    Wouldn’t it be nice to be a bird on the trees,
    Enjoy the fruits and the cool breeze
    Talk to the squirrels , and watch the chameleons change,
    Their coat to match to whatever within range

    Wouldn’t it be nice to be a bird around,
    To have the sweetest voice , a melodious sound,
    To go pritter and pratter and all the while chatter
    Any wherever you go it doesnt matter

    You have the world for your home
    All the sky for you to roam
    No tensions no fears , no work to do
    Except to enjoy life ,something humans dont do

    I pity us humans who let the world go by
    No time to watch the clouds or wish the sun good bye
    There so much money to make ,so we put our life at stake
    No care what we do and how many hearts we break

    How I wish I could be like this bird so free
    Of the vices of a man , of all the sins that be
    How I wish I could learn from the bird how to sing
    And not worry about tomorrow ,of a day yet to begin

    Oh dear bird how much I envy you
    How much I really wish I could be as free as you.!!



    Regards,
    Devika

    Dear Devika
    This is my perspective!
    Sri
    -----------------------------------------------------
    Every winter I need to fly from Siberia to South India
    To keep myself from freezing to death
    But look at the man who can change the climate
    By twiddling a few knobs on the wall!
    In winter his home is all heated and cozy
    And in summer as cool as the Alps!

    When we fly in groups, he looks at us with awe
    But we always look down upon him from the skies!
    We follow the movement of the sun always
    But to him Sun makes no difference!

    While we flap our wings a million times a day
    To move around for food and head back home
    But he moves around only to remain in shape!
    He fashions his air travel on the basis of our dynamics
    But we learn nothing from him in a million years
    Of our association with him.

    He kills us by the hundreds with his flying machines
    But blames it on us calling it a ‘bird hit’!
    Every living thing looks upon him for survival
    Yes, Man is our God until he kills us!

    Now my turn,how can i resist,



    Sitting in the comfort of your own,
    you envy me, when i go paths unknown.

    I know that you wish to touch the sky,
    but you know not what it is to be alone so high,
