Sandpiper

Long rigid legs like chopsticks

Riding the seas got seasick

Snapping your snout like click click

You are a sandpiper, not a sandchick 

 

You are a lovely sand piper

A valiant wave fighter

An expert food finder

And forever a tide rider

 

Gone with the sun

When the day is done

When the moon has come

And the night has begun

 

Long pointed beak like a blade

Proud of the nest you have made

Building your home in the shade

Forever you’ll stay unafraid
