They had come for a tete-e-tete.
New guests that we were
At their abode.
Outside the window they waited,
which they always show to their guests.
Dressed in their finest white,
They waited patiently outside the window.
Waiting for me to wake up.
Then in a moment of sheer delight,
Like a chirpy maiden’s giggle,
Reminding me of tinkling bells ringing somewhere in the distant meadows,
They let themselves fall
As gentle rain,
There to reside as droplets
Resting on window pane and
Nestling on the leaves.
