Fish Out Of Water


The birds swooped and dived,

“listen carefully to us”, 

they sang to the fish.

“We lived in water. Then

we wanted to change 

so we came out of the water,

left it below. Then 

we swapped scales for feathers,

exchanged fins for wings.

We soared on the thermals 

and perched in the trees

so come fly with us now 

it’s your turn to leave.”

The fish listened carefully 

they were intrigued.

“How do we fly?”, 

they mouthed 

in response.

“Come up and join us,

we’ll teach you to fly”.

“If you fall from the sky

we’ll teach you to swim”

the fish called up to them.

But the birds didn’t hear

until they joined in.
