My Blue Herons*

by Sharon Walters and Nancy DeStefanis

Pair of great blue herons

Great blue heron perched on a branch

Great blue heron with wings outstretched

In Golden Gate Park
From Morning ‘Til Dark
I’ll Watch Over
My Blue Herons.

A Squawk and a Squeek
From Each Little Beak
Will Lead You to
My Blue Herons.

Safe in a Hidden Nest, a Place to Rest
Made Just For You
You’ll Learn to Stand on
One Leg Like
The Big Birds Do.

Just Birdies and Me
High Up in a Tree
I’ll Watch Over
My Blue Herons.

2nd Verse

When Fogs Rollin’ In
And People Rush By
I’ll Watch Over
My Blue Herons.

Look! Here Comes a Hawk!
Hear Mom and Dad Squawk
Don’t Nibble On
My Blue Herons.

Out on a Shaky Limb
You’ll Spread your Wings
And Say Bye Bye
At first you’ll crash, you’ll bang and smash.
But then you’ll fly.

Just Birdies and Me
High Up in a Tree
You’ll Soon Be
A Great Blue Heron!

*Sung to the Tune of “My Blue Heaven”
