An excited glow was in his eyes
As he opened his hand and said: “Surprise!
Look what I found when I did my chore,
And I’m pretty sure, that there will be more!”
She heard already that cheeping sound:
“Be careful! And don’t drop them to the ground!”
Then she went with him to look for more:
There were eight perfect puffballs to adore!
Eight little chicks look like yellow beads
Around their mother who tends to their needs.
She will be giving a signal sound,
If there’s danger or when there’s food she found.
