Two little birds one Autumn day
Sat on a tree together.
They fluttered about from bough to bough
Talking about the weather.
“The wind is blowing cold,” said they,
“It chills us as we sing.”
So away they flew to the sunny South,
And there they’ll stay till Spring.
It’s easy for birds to escape the Autumn chill, they just fly off to warmer places! What about us people? Unless you’re one of the lucky ones finding a few days in the sun on a far-flung holiday, your thoughts are likely to be about switching the heating on!
