High, so high, up in the air,
There they sit without a care.
Such a scene against the blue,
Where they have the greatest view.
As they sit there side by side,
They look around far and wide.
There they give a great big smile,
Wide, just like a country mile.
The sun shining on them now,
As together they do vow.
From eighty feet in the air,
They spread their wings with no care.
Off they go to work and rest,
And to build themselves a nest
In the safety of a tree.
Blue jays, so bright, bold and free.
