An attempt to write poetry, spare the length. Written in a jiffy, this is the first time I have attempted to write a verse. Do the needful.
~A peacock's melancholy
The familiar fresh air beckons me
and my shadow dances with the tune..
Every raindrop rhymes with my heartbeat!
I plead to you...O' Bird catcher.
for the sake of humanity,
Let me go...
Set me free!
For I am a peacock, waiting to shun the sunshine.
To flaunt a mannequin of feathers...
To feel the pride, in a season that's mine.
My agony bubbles up and withers away!
I watch the rain with a sharp pang of dismay.
I envy the eagle, flying high.
and the frog, who hopped and hopped and passed by.
Also the tree...waving along!
and the clouds and thunder,
Together they compose a song.
Listen thou, Bird catcher..
No matter how much money the king may pay,
it will never have you satisfied
For I am a peacock, the messenger of god.
You'll be punished for the thousands deaths I have died.
