First published in 1916, Stray Birds consists of epigrams and short verses and are mostly translation of the epigrammatic verses of Kanika and Lekhan.

A large number of these verses were originally written in English during his stay in Japan. One can suggest the possibility of the influence of Japanese Haiku on these poems. The brevity, economy and intensity of these verses are striking and the combination of wit and wisdom has a magical lilt.
