Some workers were digging
up pipes underground,
when a very large coloured egg
Now, the foreman of th’ site
didn’t know what to do,
so he called up some keepers
from th’ local zoo.
The egg.. it was green,
and blue, brown and red,
and was lain in the ground
deep down in a bed.
A bed of red sand,
of twigs and of clays –
it looked as if th’egg
had been there for days.
Said the worker to foreman –
“where’d it come from?” , Said the Foreman – “Dunno!?!”
and just then the egg
it began to glow.
So the keepers arrived,
with their boss from the zoo,
with a team to see if
there was summat they could do.
“it could be a Lizard” – the zoo boss replied.
Some big builders turned – and ran off to hide!
As builders they gathered to mend their pride,
the keepers could hear a noise from inside…
The head keeper thought –
there was summat amiss,
as the egg it both glowed
and started to hiss.
The little creature inside,
was feeling awfully glum
as all that it wanted was its
Dad and its Mum
“No need for alarm!”, the zoo boss he said
“we need to give th’egg, some sort of bed
nothing too great and nothing so grand..”
so the builders brought over some big bags of sand.
So little egg it was rested
in its warm sandy bed
just as two shadows
“Oh Heavens!” cried a builder
I think i’ve just seen
Th’ eggs Mum and Dad!”
Two big scaly dinosaurs , seen flying through the air,
Identified as Pterodactyls , landed at the top of the stairs
The Head Keeper called for everyone’s calm –
he knew that the winged dinosaurs, didn’t mean any harm.
And little egg it glowed brighter
as little winged fella he did peck
and Mum and Dad Pterodactyl
landed on th’ deck
And Mummy Pterodactyl landed,
as Dad flew over sky
as the glowing egg it opened
and the contents it said “Hi!”
And the parents smiled kindly
nodding thank you to the team.
They named their little lad “Terry” –
who was their little red dream
They then made their Zoo friends happy,
as they watched three dinos at night
as Mum and Dad took their little Terry
Off on his first little flight.
And then, politely nodding
they said their thanks and goodbye.
As the family of flying dinosaurs headed
to their home up high in the sky!
Loved the story. Nicely written
