Kids poem: The birds home

Discussion in 'Quotes & Poems' started by Yours, May 5, 2016.

  1. O, where is thy home, sweet bird
    With the song, and bright glossy plume?
    "I'll tell thee where I rest,
    If thou wilt not rob my nest ;
    I built among the sweet apple-bloom !"

    But, what's in thy nest, bright bird ?
    What's there, in the snug downy cell ?
    "If thou wilt not rob the tree ;
    Nor go too near, to see
    My quiet little home, I will tell."

    0, I will not thy trust betray !
    The secret I will closely keep.
    "I've three tender little things
    That have never used their wings !
    I left them there, at home, fast asleep."

    Then, .why art thou here, my bird,
    Away from thy young, helpless brood ?
    " To pay thee with a song-
    Just to let me pass along,
    Nor harm me, as I look for their food."
