OUR FRIEND, THE BIRD
Our world is enhanced by birds on the wing, They grace our blue skies as they chirp and they sing.
Their early spring songs bring joy to the ear, a summer of songs many months we shall hear.
The robins, the sparrows, a help to mankind, eat pesky mosquitoes and bugs that they find.
Geese on the lake or ducks on the shore, they want to be friends and ask nothing more.
A companion for man, their songs fill the air, enjoyment they bring, so much to share.
The hummingbird’s quickness shows lightening speed, as it pollinates flowers seed after seed.
Year after year, there’s a ritual sight as geese form a V on their ritual flight.
Let’s be their companions, protect what they need, and our fine, feathered friends will return our good deed.
