About 6 years ago, I obtained my first budgie.
Woodpecker was his name,
Being playful was his game,
He was BudgiesGalore's first pet,
His beautiful chirps I will never forget,
He was playful right to the end.
When his life drew to a close,
I held him close,
So when he took his dying breath,
He wasn't as still in my heart, as in death.
