Standing Sentinel

By Ndaba Sibanda

Standing Sentinel

She protects them against pecking
and violent predators, she's adoring!
She's an indulgent, vigilant parent
She gathers them when a threat's present
She gathers her chicks under her wings
She herds chicks away from danger's rings
She knows how to nudge their beaks into water
so that they learn the drinking procedure faster!
She is not only a shield but also a great instructor
Motherhood is her emblem, what a heroic protector
