The Birds


Have you seen the birds in spring?

They are nearly always on the wing

Seeking in the east and west

Materials to build their nest

The eggs are laid and are kept warm

Protected from the wind and storms

Until the sound of breaking shell

Tells the parents that all is well

Then they spend all day in search of food

To satisfy their hungry breed

Chicks which grow stronger every day

Until one day they fly away

Parents then begin their quest

To find a site for a second nest

Another clutch of eggs are laid

And the care of the parents is again displayed

The days grow shorter every day

Until one day they fly away

Then no more can they be seen

They have gone away to pastures green

Where there is warmth and food for all
