A World Without Birds (1 Viewer)

I loved them for their beauty and songs even as a young boy
And learning of their ways i still do enjoy
But due to habitat destruction and climate change it does seem sad to say
That bird numbers are dwindling in the World by the day

Some birds quite familiar to you and to me
The children of the future may not hear and see
The Wildlife of the World face an uncertain fate
That does seem a sad thing for to contemplate

Their beautiful colours the songs they do sing
To those who love Nature such joy they do bring
Of us they do live independent and free
A World without birds how sad that would be

Distinct from each other by their colours and and chirps and their song
The freedom of Nature to them does belong
But it is sad to think they are becoming rare
The thought of a World without birds is a thought hard to bear
