I am friendly with the sparrow

Though his mind is rather narrow

And his manners--well, the less we say the better.

But as day begins to peep,

When I hear his cheery "Cheep"

I am ready to admit I am his debtor

I delight in red-browed finches

And all birds of scanty inches.

Willie wagtail is a pleasant bird, and coy.

All the babblers, chats and wrens,

Tits and robins, and their hens,

Are my very special friends, and bring me joy.
