Radio Poets 2016: James Pham



High Above the Grounds

James Pham, ER Taylor Elementary School


Flying over clouds 

Way up high, real high in the sky

They’re screeching and screaming

Just be real loud!


Birds in the sky

Way up high

Gotta flap those wings

Hey! Get off the ground!


It’s time to hunt, time to feed

Gotta get moving away from the wind

From north to south

From cold to warm

I wish I had a pocket full of seeds!


They fly together, it’s a V formation!

Their colors make a rainbow

Oh, what a sensation!

Wings full of colors

Beaks full of noise

Birds are not messy

Birds are a great joy!
