Ancient Persian Mythology, Australian poet, Australian traditional poetry, Formal poetry, Huma Bird or Bird of Paradise, poem, poetry, Quest, Sufism, The bird with no feet
The bird with no feet makes its nest
In a cloud — there it pauses for rest,
And one egg does the little bird lay,
For one bird must replace it one day.
To just one, all its life, it gives birth;
To soar high — when it falls to the Earth.
— D.N. O’Brien
