Red Bird



Paxton Dillon


This poem shows a cute story in nature that can brighten up young children's day.

As I look up, something red zooms by me like a jet plane.
I try to keep my eye on it, yet it is so swift.
I saw it land in a tree extremely close to me.
After what felt like one hundred years,
I got to the tree the figure landed in.
I creep closer to the tree and see a bird,
a beautiful rose colored bird sitting in a nest.
Then I see three bubblegum colored baby birds
hop out of the nest screaming with hunger.
Then the rose bird pulls out three worms
and feeds each baby.
They all stopped,
huddled together,
and fell asleep.
