A Bird in the Bath, More Fun than in the Bush

Stands on the edge, tall, looks around carefully

Twists this way, that way, steps to the left, then to the right

Takes the first plunging-dip, head first, body follows

Comes up with enthusiastic splashing, shivering, shakes water everywhere

Wings flap like high speed crazy, tail flips back and forth

Stands on the edge, tall, looks around carefully

Twists around to preen the back feathers, the wing feathers

Second plunging-dip, then third, happily splashing, flipping, flapping

Stands on the edge, stretches, quivers the feathers

Flutters into the tree, drips on the grass
