When I awoke one morning, a bird was on my bed.
I asked, “What are you doing here?”
It winked at me and said…”Hi! My name is Sally and
I’m searching for a friend.
If you would be my bird, I will be faithful ’til the end.
I have the brightest colors, yellow, mango, green, and blue;
and my vocabulary is sure to tickle you!”
I thought for just a moment as she began her serenade
of “Good Morning,” and “Wha’cha doin’?” and
“Have a happy day!”
Then, she moved into our nest,
my kitchen, clean and bright;
Where we exchange our small talk
and consider our next plight.
