Bird Poems for Children

I've Made It - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

I've Made It

I was one out of thirteen that survived it this year,

But tonight I have made it, so send up a cheer.


For weeks upon weeks I have trotted around

Accompanied by mother, both feet on the ground.


I grew adult plumage.  I’m smart, I admit.

I’ve strengthened my wings and shown off quite a bit.


Tonight, though, was special as I flew over town

And with Mum and with Dad on the river came down.


What a day of excitement!  I surely won’t sleep

For in the life of a duck it’s one very big leap!
