I have teamed up again with the talented Sandra (or Daffy as I like to call her), from Wild Daffodil to bring you another bit of silliness this Saturday. Sandra is incredibly artistic and creative, and I just love the images she has created out of shells, stones and flowers.
One of the nicest things about Sandra’s blog is that you never know what she is going to get up to next, from beach art to knitted wigs, and mandalas to making spirals in her garden.
We haven’t done a Silly Saturday for a while, but I couldn’t resist joining in when Daffy showed me her latest brilliant creation. Birdy McBirdFace.
Birdy had such a handsome face
In flight, he was elegance and grace
As he rested on the beach
He heard a loud screech
Sid Seagull flicked sand in his face.
Sid was loud and uncouth
And strutted with the arrogance of youth
Swinging his hips
And gorging on chips
He teased Birdy for being long in the tooth!
Birdy challenged Sid to a race
The seagull laughed in his face
With my youth and my size
I’ll easily take first prize
But his boasting was sadly misplaced!
As Birdy flew high in the sky
Sid regretted pecking that meat pie
With all the chips and the bread
He felt as heavy as lead
He couldn’t leave the ground if he tried!
Birdy was not one to boast
He won doing what he loved most
Flying along with the breeze
Above the crystal blue seas
He loved his life on the coast.
