‘Thank you for your beady eyes,
That always make me smile.
Your infectious enthusiasm
Just like that of a child,
Lifts our spirits up
When the day seems bleak.
Your cooing, your gurgling
Is your attempt at trying to speak.
We rescued you two years ago,
From the claws of a crow.
In effect you rescued us
With your caring heart, you know.
‘Just a bird’, some folk sneer,
I would not fret or worry.
They know not the love of a feathered friend,
For them I feel truly sorry.’

This is our pet bulbul Mac. We tried to nurse him and leave him in the wild but he was hurt and took 8 months to begin flying. So now he is our family member.💚
