Clean and crisp.
A chance to change.
No looking back,
No dwelling on the past.
Just looking forward,
to all that is about
Shaking with excitement
Huge smiles upon your faces
You both jump up and down
Your natural happiness coats me
We enter the enclosure
Beautiful green birds flying around us
One of you shy’s away,
you don’t take the necta,r you watch
Birds land on my arm,
pecking at the beaker of nectar
your eyes widen,
your smile is slightly apprehensive
your brother takes the beaker
birds flock onto his arms
he is amazed at holding so many
worried at the sharpness of their claws
You both find it hard to relax
its perfectly natural for you to feel this way
The nectar is finished, we leave the area
the beams across your faces are infectious
you both chatter 19 to the dozen
the experience was new and exciting
you forget your nerves,
and quite rightly revel in your achievements.
