"In a softly feathered nest,
a mama bird and hatchlings rest.
Mama always does her best
to keep her babies fed.
But all the little birdies cry
when Mama says she has to fly.
She cuddles each and chirps, 'Good-bye,'
then tucks them into bed."

Mama bird must leave the babies sometimes.  She has to be sure to gather food for them and herself.  But the little birds are afraid Mama won't come back.  What do you think?  Mama always comes home.
