A nibble on one ear
A peck on my cheek
A coffee in hand, beware
A friendly little beak

A coo in my ear
A tuck in my chest
A rattle of feathers
Inside her nest

Three little chicks
Of colours unknown
Skinny little things
That her love life has sown

Proud mother
Proud as can be
Our pet cockatiel Nicky
Just wants us to see
