Drawings: Dalliance of the Birds

Anna Christina R Rotor
 Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School on Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday

Eagles do it in the air, 
Bowers in colorful lair,
Hippos in the murky swamp,
Flamingos in river sump,
Monkeys in the high treetop,
Locusts on standing crop,
Fowls on the dusty ground,
Herons to where they're bound,
Horses neigh and kick and bite,
Snakes coy and fake to strike,
Giraffes entangle their necks,
Fish display their fins and streaks,
Frogs couple for long hours, 
Houseflies do it in their chores,
Humans in whispers petting,
Dalliance a sacred thing.

Drawings in pastel by Anna Christina R Rotor, circa 1995
