Squirrels in my garden,

Sparrows on my roof,

Cat dozing on my steps,

A wag of the tail, a woof!

 

Peeping through the window

A crow that wants a bite,

Tabby on a leisurely stroll,

Dogs who love a fight.

 

Lovely, majestic pigeons

Soft and timid and slow,

Fly up, flutter the wings

And put up quite a show.

 

Trying to cross busy roads

Cows with liquid eyes,

Goats so gentle and ‘stupid’

Looking on with patient sighs.

 

From the myna, magpie-robins

To the horses’ haggard existence,

The city would be a jungle

But for their graceful presence.
