Silly Bird Lullaby

In spring in a tree in a nest full of tailfeathers
a fluttering baby bird sang
he/she had no idea what he/she was saying but
sang it again and again.

The silly bird’s mother went to find worms for her
babies and when she came back
the silliest baby swallowed the fattest one
for a squirmy snack.

Baby is safe now
under wings of heaven until
heaven gets too crowded.

If babies are silly how did they get to be?
Was it Mom or was it Dad?
It must have been someone up in the family tree –
someone better than bad.

The silly bird left his/her silly nest learning to
flap his/her silly little wings.
The silly bird left her/his warm home wanting to
see what silliness brings.

Baby is safe now
under wings of heaven until
heaven gets too crowded.
