The Birds of BorgheseA Poem by Shin ( formerly known as ) Bidayah
It's nice to take a walk in the mornings.
I left before dawn and hoped to catch the sunrise,
Its terribly humid today, been that way these two days.
Entering the park through the Porta Pinciana,
I got to my seat at the Temple of Aesculapius,
The sky was starting to purple and shine the gold.
The Borghese is almost a museum of parks, historically,
Its just great to be here from time to time.
I had sat on the bench, next to a street lamp,
And noticed some swifts flying overhead, some jays
Were nearby and a few budgies on the ground.
A white butterfly flew and nosed around the touch-me-nots
On the ground and seemed to pay no attention to anything else.
Suddenly a fracas broke out in the neem tree where the birds were,
It was getting really loud and then I noticed with some alarm,
That the tree was closest to where I was sitting and,
Given a entire row of trees nearby, they were all on this one.
I thought it was starting again and quickly took my bag,
And walked away from the temple area. Another time Aesculapius.
I have to speak to Lyon about his cousin Shin who's staying with us,
Lyon's so protective about things and I hope it'll be okay.
