Yellow Jack


I have a pet canary,
I call him Yellow Jack.
He has white feathers on his wings
and yellow on his back.

I love my pet canary,
I feed him every day.
I put fresh seeds into his bowl;
he pecks them straight away.

My dearest pet canary,
I love to hear him sing.
He chirps and cheeps to me each day
and even more in spring.

My lovely pet canary,
I watch him day and night.
Today I watched him lay an egg.
I think her name’s not right.

  1. Hi Kristin,
    Your poem is great. I like birds to and I am going to make a bird feeder out of a pin corn.
    This reminded me the poem you wrote “Playground Fight” because their is a bird.

  2. Hi Kristin I really liked this poem because it was really cute.
    I am scared of birds because of the way they move their head.


  3. Hi Kristen! I really like the last bit of the poem because it is really funny! I really like your poems because they are so fun to read.

    • Hi Thenumi,

      Thanks for your comment. One of the responsibilities of having a pet bird is cleaning out their cage. But you have to be careful they don’t fly away when you are cleaning it!
