The Ugly Little Bird | A Poem by Admiral Mahic

Someone has pulled me out of the grass
Because I had fallen
From a black branch.

O sweet! O wild!
The cats are evil here!

O I am an ugly little bird – with my soft beak
I keep pecking at the running brook
And I screech when at someone
Bruised by the brute force I look!

My wings still cannot fly
But I love to travel.
My little feet I can hardly raise.
Restraining my wild little shudders
I feebly into the sky gaze.

I do not want to be in the nest
In which darkness keeps me warm.
Alone and all my own
Weak and strong,
I remain out, in the storm!

Admiral Mahic is a poet from Bosnia.
