Cuckoo Crow Agape

As though treasure lost
Cuckoo chirps in rhyme hiccups 
Eggs lay in crow’s nest
She knows crow will care her chicks 
For mother, every child’s hers

Does cuckoo trick crow
Persuading care for her chicks 
Could one fully know
Nature’s rhythm that calculates  
The roles of cuckoo and crow 

While crow shelters all 
Cuckoo brings food abundant 
Each one protects all 
No true parasitism found
Agape is the norm profound
