The Uncrowned Queen

The Uncrowned  Queen short poem

Photo by BillDamon

In my Solitude
I looked all around-
To sooth my mind.
I noticed, a little Sparrow
Starting its nest.
Day by day, I watched the little bird
The progress of construction was going on
With small grasses and pieces of sticks.
The piece of stick in her beak
Was like a mountain on the head.
At last, the little sparrow
Owned her little palace
Days passed-
The little Sparrow was out of my sight,
Out from my memory.
But to my surprise,
One day I heard, from her palace
The chirping sound of some little birds.
I noticed
The Sparrow outside her palace.
She looked proud
She stared at me with all highness of a queen.
Behind her I noticed,
Two little heads with yellow beaks-
With chirping sounds and loving hearts.
She did it, yes, she did it.
She is the uncrowned queen now
With her little Princesses.
I smiled- with the thought,
”dreams come through with hard work”.

I was working as the head teacher of a high school for many years.I have written many poems in English, Urdu and Malayalam. But i never had the confidence to bring it to the public .Better to say, i never tried for it due to lack of confidence.Now i got a platform to bring myself forward.Thanks to the editorial board of high on poems.I enjoy reading and writing.
