BEAUTIFUL BLUE JAY
Oh, regal blue jay, how sweetly you sing
From your high perch on my northern pine tree;
Dressed in bright blue you're a dear sight to see,
Handsomely striped (black and white) on the wing.
The seeds and acorns you bury in spring,
Burst forth with life and awaken the lea;
Sow, little planter, so happy and free -
Stay all year long in your nest by the swing.
Preening and prancing you play by my door,
Then to your course nest you gracefully soar;
Safe in their sanctuary bundles of down
Fresh from green egg shells, all speckled with brown,
Await their next meal with wide open beaks;
They'll be fully fledged within a few weeks.
