Arranged as musical notes in the air
The pie wagtail flies down to start the show
His tail conducting with care
The woodpecker starts with

Kettle drums containing the fervent pursuit
for whimpering rodents.
With a skunk-like flash of black and white,
the delight of monochrome mania,
snatching glances at potential prey.
