and they flew

one day the flightless peacock
got a message from above
and when it filled his heart
he gave the message to a dove
when he received it he knew it was true
this was something special 
and to all the world it should be flew
the dove gave it to a crane
and the crane gave it to a duck
which went south for the winter
where the message was also brought
but then the dragon got word
and he didn't like it at all
he flew around the world
saying the message was false
but all the birds knew it 
and the woodpecker too
the message of God's love
is very, very true

(This goes with a presentation of origami birds and a dragon that can flap their wings.)

    "but then the dragon got word and he didn't like it at all he flew around the world saying the message was false" (perhaps that is why God made the dragon fly John- in Appalachia the dragon flys purpose is to warn of the presence of a snake. I was swimming in a pond one time my brother Wade told me that.
