In the gray plantations, gaiety abound
Food and drink were superfluous a need
The little family did share every bit gathered
Perry and Merry slept not, till the nests were safe
In the quiet peace they prayed for that gracious day
Perry was conscientious and Merry gave her care
That joyful sunset when the quintuplet did appear
A wave of happiness did soar the air above

What a wonderful family they made
Terry, Ferry, Serry, Herry and Berry
As they beautifully soared after Merry each day
Their gray paraphernalia did display warmth
Until famine sent them to the greens one day
When Berry’s eye did blink and his mind carried away
To the world of color and wealth; beauty and fame
Opaquely covering its impiety and rancor

He would stay longer and glare at the beauty 
Until he met Dicey, who said there was a way
But how could he contravene his family merits?
He was choking with the poverty and needed an air of wealth
At least a few wings for himself and the family will do
But Dicey looked dicey, yet Berry reserved his fears
To dare and surpass the thick cloud of indigence
Wrapping his family and creating bounds; above and below

Hand in hand, Berry and Dicey did fly to Patty the king
Berry humbly poured his plea till it flowed to Patty’s heart
But the conditions could not be ignored and Patty knew
The conditions were sacrificial; virtues for wealth
Berry did ponder of his priceless piety
Meticulously prepared for him by Merry with love
No! he said, as he suffered the repercussions of his folly
And endured the torturous disdain of that impure world
Back into the sweet arms of his humble cherubic family!
