Count it as…!

If Plants, having bitten 

With axes canopied

Count the earth has lost its breath

If coast, is shaken by the mirage with clear sand dunes

Count the river as dead

If stars, has no butterflies leaning on

Count the garden has swaddled by autumn

If hawks, with iron nails are flying over the fields

Count the world has mournful destruction

If Titus, is singing in the village

Count the village has migrated

If Farmer, gets away with soil like quail swayed the tree

Count the country as orphan.!
