Fresh Prints

Ali Walker, Treasure Mountain Middle School student

Erik works outside,

While the sun is beating down

Pause for a glass of lemonade

Notice something in the corner,

Call in the family,

Something incredible has happened

Grab the ladder,

Pear over the edge,

Gasps all around

There sits a birds nest,

Four bright blue eggs

The mama has gone away for food

Bob, Ian, Rob, Dan

That’s what they were called

They were like family

We watched them grow,

Each and every day,

Even the mama likes us

When they hatch,

Into the oddest looking things,

Only three remain

Where’s Dan!

He is lost

We don’t know where he has gone

Dinner one night,

With a horrifying smell

Look around the back

Find the puppy,

Chomping, chomping, chomping,

On bright blue shavings

Ali Walker wrote this poem for Iris Durfee’s creative writing class.
