Man, Know your limit

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

A butterfly sits
On a feathery flower tip.
A sparrow sits
On a slender twig tip.
An eagle sits
On a sturdy treetop.

Each one knows
Its own weight,
A seat it selects,
Knowing its limit,
And up it flies,
To its chosen height.

His own limits,
A man knows not.
Too much he wants,
More than his limit.
It's where he suffers,
Life long, quite a lot.

Habits die hard
A Bouquet of Oriental Poems
An Indian Marriage Scene
