In such joy she flew from the nest

Her long awaited babies were here

Mother bird danced her way to find food

For her newly hatched babies

She danced to every song her mind conceived

Till some pleasure-seeking youths hunted her down

Her new bundles of joy waited in ignorance in the nest

Mother Bird crawled her way back home

For she promised her weeping twins she would return

Her long awaited babies were here

And she couldn’t be anywhere else.
