Mother bird was full of pride
as her babies filled the nest
of all her eggs that had hatched
she knew these babies were best.
She brought them food all day long
greeted by their little tweets
thinking of the work she must do
because of all each baby eats.
Soon she decides to tell them
as she approaches the tree
about the reason they are there
and she tells their history.
She tells them of thousands of years
every bird has built a nest
and laid their eggs and waited
while Mother Nature did the rest.
She said when they grew older
they would give their wings a try
and every single one of them
would find out how to fly.
Next year it would be their turn
to build their own little nest
and she knew she could teach them
so they could all pass the test.
Next time you hear the chirping
while the feeding is taking place
remember their conversation
with a knowing smile on your face.
