Feathered Royal by Thompson Emate

Thompson Emate | June 30th, 2021 | poetry | No Comments


She runs with
the agility of a sprinter,
She walks with rigid steps,
She jumps with quick, light
steps as if in a hurdle race,
Legs firm and sturdy,
Long and erect
like bamboo sticks,
She watches over her young
with keen eyesight,
The feet of the feathered Queen,
built with the strength of
the foundation of
an ivory tower,
They take her to places,
Far and wide,
Beyond borders,
Across undulating terrains.
