Feathers in My Cap

Feathers in My Cap

The madcap in me,

Resolved to went ,

On a shopping spree,

To collect feathers,

Which would adorn my cap,

In all weathers.


I searched for them,

Here, there and everywhere. 

Looked outside for them,

And inside as well.

But soon I discovered,

That the west wind had blown them,

To distant realms.

And true indeed, to me,

This discovery of mine,

Changed the whole  game.


Time passed and time again,

The west wind blew in my realm.

But this time, thank God,

I knew the game.

The madcap in me,

Stopped looking for the feathers.

For finally, it dawned on me,

That they would be blown towards my cap,

If I could survive and surpass the challenges,  

Thrown towards me by all weathers.
