The Albatross

An albatross
flew across
 the sea,
spied an island
called Hawaii.

He built
a nest
on a golf course,
then called and called,
till he was hoarse.

A lady albatross 
flew by.
She heard him clack.
She heard him cry
She gave a loving sigh,
decided she'd
give him a try.

She stopped her flying
took a rest.
She joined him 
in his cozy nest.

She folded her wings
and tucked her legs.
Together they sang
and laid four eggs.

  1. Last weekend we saw an albatross nest! Mama was already feeding a few babes. The nest was built on a pier! (Glad it was far away from me)!
