Chickadees are my favorite winter bird, they are so small and yet survive the harshest weather. They have now returned and so I thought it was time for a new poem about these friendly little birds. I hope you will enjoy.
Chickadee bouncing through the air,
Floating fluff on a wave so fair.
Singing it’s name loud and with cheer,
So pleasant, I just love to hear.
Always going from morn to night,
Whether sunny or stormy fright.
With feathers spread out soft and fine,
On coldest days kept warm to shine.
This little bird is such a friend,
No matter what it will attend,
Gently landing, it’s very bold,
What a joy on my hand to hold.
So amazing, this bird so small,
Some are tough, it beats them all.
