Mother

Putting water in the beak
Lets her nestling to drink
Puts food inside the mouth
Lets her nestling to eat.

In winter-spring-summer-rainy season
She keeps her nestlings under her own wings
Not eating herself
Give the baby food to the mouth.

Let the earth be in hostility
How did you forget that mother?

Ten months ten days
keeping inside the belly
But, laughing
How many hopes in the heart.

During the time to be born
How much pain she bears
Yet smile on her face
When she hears her baby’s cry.

Enfolding in her chest
She remains extremely happy
She forward her hands
Call the baby towards her.

When the child becomes sick, afterwards
She cares for her whole night and day
Provides continuous attendance
Nevertheless, her face remains bright.

Not eating herself
Give the baby food to the mouth
Let the earth be in hostility
How did you forget that mother?
