“What does little birdie say?”
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
From “Sea Dreams”
WHAT does little birdie say
In her nest at peep of day?
Let me fly, says little birdie,
Mother, let me fly away.
Birdie, rest a little longer, 5
Till the little wings are stronger.
So she rests a little longer,
Then she flies away.
What does little baby say,
In her bed at peep of day? 10
Baby says, like little birdie,
Let me rise and fly away.
Baby sleep, a little longer,
Till the little limbs are stronger,
If she sleeps a little longer, 15
Baby too shall fly away.
My translation 👓
And the little birdie went “SPLAT!”
This is my honest opinion, if the birdie is let out of the nest too early it won’t be able to survive it.
If you are human though and you’re reading this (I believe you can teach any primate to do anything these days even read! 😒) then you need to stop over protecting your children & expect them to out develop their own coping mechanism with society.
Be the fight , fight it or create an ideal situation for themselves.
