When it’s early morning
Before it’s really light
A flock of parrots flies across
Looking trim and bright

They swoop down on the juicy grams
Which I love to throw
They are not afraid of me
The way they come and go!

Soon my lawn is clean and clear
Of every little grain

Parrots in My Garden [Illustration by Sudheer Nath]
Parrots in My Garden [Illustration by Sudheer Nath]

And then the parrots leave the place
To fly back once again.
