This is a wonderful poem from Beat, Measure, Rhyme to share, since I have a interest in birds. This is a clever and humorous poem! Enjoy.
We invited the birds for a party
To celebrate National Bird Day.
But the cats got over excited
And tried to chase them away.
The tiny wren squarked in anger,
The blue tit turned white with fear,
The sparrow hopped ferociously
When SlinkyCat drew near.
The thrush sent a song to the heavens
‘The cats are stopping the fun!’
And so gathered a feathered army –
The battle had just begun. ..
The starlings backed up the magpies
The jackdaws stood strong with the crow
With chirrup and wings flapping greatly
They cheeped ‘No! It’s the cats who must go!
Stop crashing the gathering kittens!
It’s our party haven’t you heard?
We’re celebrating being fabulous
with our national day of the bird!’
Then a pigeon piped up bravely
‘You can join us if you like.
But just be warned – any claws or teeth,
And you’ll be on your bike!’
So the cats agreed to behaving,
and popped on some party hats.
And we watched our happy garden,
Wishing it could always be like that.
