For Afton, my own little bird.
I am a like a bird. I love to spread my wings.
I am curious, and bright, and I love to explore my world.
Sometimes I am like a parrot, I love to learn and immitate.
What did you say? I said it too.
I am fast like an ostrich, If you’re not watching I might get away,
my long legs are growing, and I love to run and explore.
I have eyes like a falcon, I can spot the tiniest yummy morsels on the floor,
even from my countertop perch.
But I am also like an owl, I am intense and intelligent
wise and thoughtful I learn and grow.
Occasionally I can be fierce and aggressive like a cassowary,
I can throw a tantrum that would make the bravest adventurer tremble.
More often I am gentle and playful like a penguin.
I love to laugh and play all day.
Once in a great while I am like a small hummingbird,
I float here and there softly, lightly. I curiously search for adventure.
Then there are times when I feel cuddly, and affectionate like a lovebird.
I just love my mom and dad.
I am a little bird and I am fantastic.
