Poem – Recite O Parrot King Rama’s Name 

Recite O parrot King Rama’s name! Sati Sita instructs.

Dangling the cage near her, she makes him rehearse.

‘ I will have green bamboo shoots fetched,

I will make a pretty cage and deck it with exquisite jewels!

Recite O parrot King Rama’s name!’ Sati Sita instructs.
O parrot! I will have delicious bread crumble made for you

And I will serve you with sugar and ghee!

What else, O parrot will I order for you?

Recite O parrot King Rama’s name!’ Sati Sita instructs.
Yellow are his wings, pale his feet and a black band decks his throat

O with his own little tune, he worships Narsaiyya’s Lord!

Recite O parrot King Rama’s name! Sati Sita instructs.
