I CAN FLY
No, it was impossible! He was never going to be able to do it. He would never have the courage to throw himself off the edge of the nest! He was too high up and too frightened.
The little bird’s feathers trembled just thinking about it. How did everyone else manage it? His brothers had already learned to fly and now there was only him left.
‘Everyone is going to think I’m such a coward,’ Sighed the bird.
‘Come on, jump! You can do it!’
But despite her encouragement, the little chick was pinned to the edge of the nest with fear.
‘ I want to ask stay in this soft nest,’ stuttered the chick. ‘I don’t want to leave. I’m happy here.’
But when the chick saw his brothers flaying around, he did envy them a little.
‘They do look happy,’ he thought, ‘and they’re free. If only I wasn’t so scared!’
Just then, a noise stirred the chick from his daydream. It was wind tearing through the tree. Suddenly, the tree began to shake and the branch where the little bird’s nest rested kept moving from side to side until the nest fell out! The little bird felt him self falling and without even meaning to, he felt his wings start to flap. He was flying! What a wonderful feeling it was!
Later, when the little bird grew up, he never forgot his first flight and how exiting it felt.
