Animal Lover

Animal Lover

A Poem by zainul
"

The youth displayed his gracious mind to the animals

"

Four cats took refuge in the shadow

Crows cawed from ground and trees

Heatwave hurts like poisonous arrow

Sun sucked water of rivers and seas


People are frightened of sunstroke

They avoid going out of their homes

World seems to be covered by smoke

All animals try to hide under domes


A strange thing happened suddenly

A youth came there from nowhere

He put some foods for the cat family

His eyes showed compassion and care



The cats started to eat the tasty food

They looked very pleased by the favor

The youth was very friendly and good

He was seen as a perfect cat lover


He waited until they finished eating

Some foods remained in the hamper

He looked at the crows in the meeting

He wished to show better temper


He made small balls with them

And threw them here and there

Crows enjoyed food gathering game

They were happy with their share



Cats and crows are friends of mankind

The youth displayed his gracious mind

This is a nicely original & imaginative way to show us a contrast between people who are stuck & blinded by their indoor living routine, & those of us who are more tuned into the outdoor animal world. I write many animal poems & stories so I'm always going to enjoy a fellow animal lover. It feels like your writing & your thinking is uninhibited, which makes your message feel unexpected, even tho it's familiar.

This brings to mind that even when we are suffering, we can still do good for others, and then do some more. I really like the positivity shown in this poem.

I really like the clarity of the poem's message as well as the excellent use of rhyming. The imagery was also quite good too. I would recommend that you continue to use such things in future works of yours.

Such a beautiful expression of kindness towards our animal friends. I love the way you used vivid imagery to express a young child braving the weather to care for the suffering animals. The rhythm was structured, the emotions well expressed and the imagery perfectly constructed. Thank you for sharing.

You are sweet too.
Adore your great gesture!
What a delightful scene you created here, Zainul! The child feeding the cats and the crows...and unlikely duo! There is a lesson to be learned here. The crows were happy they were given a share...they did not try to steal from the cats. If only the world were more like the animals in your poem. Very well written with wise words and great rhyming.
