Baby Birds Birthday - Monday's Child # 33

Monday's Child prompt for children's poetry or verse


Mrs. Bird was as proud as could be, 
for the cake she'd baked was ready for tea.
It was no ordinary cake, no not today
for it was Baby Birds birthday, and he was on his way!

She lit the candles, one for each year
and everyone waited to give him a cheer.
When baby bird came, they shouted as one
"Happy Birthday Baby, Happy Birthday, Have Fun!" 

Baby Bird tweeted and flapped with his wings
then opened his parcels and presents and things.
Then down they all sat, with plates ready to take
a huge scrummy portion of Mrs. Birds cake.

Love the lyrical flow to this, like the birds' morning song.
