Adventures of a baby bird
by Jera Babylon
Age Group: Adult
Mommy bird and baby bird
were living in their nest.
Mommy said "it's time for you
to have a little rest.
While asleep I shall go
to fetch a few supplies,
now do not leave our little nest
for you're to young to fly!"
She tucked him in and off she went
expecting him to rest,
but dear oh dear the baby bird
was tired of the nest!
He stretched himself to take a peek
at the world outside his home...
then lost his balance and tumbled down
toward this world unknown.
With a splash he landed in the water far below
he had not even learned to fly,
of swimming he did not know!
Luckily Mr. frog was baking in the sun
when down came baby birdie still sucking at his thumb...
The frog rescued birdie from the water cold
and dried him in the sunlight
where he began to scold...
but, at this time there was a snake
looking for food to eat,
he saw the frog and birdie
so slithered to their feet.
The frog knew there was trouble
so took baby by the hand
and hopped away frantically
toward the higher land.
But snake was fast and followed
his dinner was in sight!
"Oh no!" shouted baby bird
shaking now with fright.
Mommy bird was almost home
when she heard her baby cry,
she dived down, grabbed them both,
and up she did fly.
When in the nest, baby bird
vigorously began to shake
while mommy bird scolded him
about the dangerous snake.
"I'm sorry mom" cried baby bird
"about not heeding you.
If it were not for Mr. Frog
I would now be birdie-stew!"
Mommy put her arms
around her little baby wren.
"yes my love", she said to him,
"now, will this happen again?"
"No..." sighed little baby,
snugly in his nest,
"for I have learned that mommy
always does know what is best..."
"Thank you Mr. Frog
for saving me from the snake,
I sure am sorry
that I chose to stay awake!"
"The moral of the story"
continued birdie, "is clear to see,
mommy really does know
what is best for me..."
With this he closed his eyes
and snuggled up tight,
"I love you little birdie" said mom,
"God bless you, and good night..."
