Analysis of Fly Birds, Fly!



Fly Birds, Fly!
By: Willow Grants

Chickadee, fly like there’s no tomorrow.
Blackbird, fly because you can’t borrow.
Fly birds, fly!

Cardinals, soar like a might angel.
Doves, fly till’ night is nigh.
Fly heavenly birds, fly!

Robins, fly for your young.
Bluebird, fly and let your voice be rung.
Fly beautiful birds, fly!

Eagles, fly and be regale.
Sparrows, soar like an arrow.
Fly gallant birds, fly!

Oh my, look at those birds’ fly!
Big and small, short and tall!
Round and round, up and down!
Fly birds, fly!
